At BTO, we strive to provide students with the opportunity to develop performance skills and activities that are essential to the growth of a professional dancer. Both classes and performance opportunities uphold this vision and can lead the aspiring dancer to a professional career.
Our Pre-Professional 1 (PP1) and Pre-Professional 2 (PP2) classes are designed to guide a dancer beyond the basic foundations of classical ballet and into the skills necessary for a professional career. PP1 instructs dancers age 11-13, and moves from intermediate to advanced ballet, including beginning and intermediate pointe work. PP2, for students 13 years of age and older, focuses on advanced ballet, including point work, variations, and pas de deux.
We also instruct in modern dance, which is recommended for students who are a part of our pre-professional 2 class.
