Full-Time Program Information
Our full time program has been developed to produce strong, well-rounded dancers wishing to train at an advanced level. Dancers in the full time program are expected to be dedicated to training in a disciplined, technique-intensive program. Program requirements vary by age group, and are listed below. Additional classes may be added for those wishing to train in more genres than required. Dancers participating in the Full Time program must be aware that technique class time slots may, on the rare occasion, be used to complete/clean competitive choreography when necessary. In the event this must occur, it will not always be possible for the class time to be rescheduled for dancers who are not a part of the routine.
Mandatory VS Optional Classes – In the charts below you will find a list of mandatory classes for each program. Optional classes (listed on the lower half of each chart) may be added to your schedule at no extra cost.
Additional Classes – Some students choose to take an additional technique class outside of their program level (ex: 2 tap classes or 2 acro classes). If you are interested in an additional class, please inquire and we are happy to add this into your schedule, if space permits. These classes are charged at $200+HST for the year. – this payment will be divided into 10 equal instalments.
PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) – Two levels of PBT classes are being added to the roster this year. (Jr/Inter and Teen/Senior) These will take place from September-June. The cost for this program is $300+HST for the year – this payment will be divided into 10 equal instalments. Equipment will be provided by the studio, or dancers may use their own if they wish. *Minimum number of participants required for program to run.
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students’ technique by focussing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. It is a unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner from junior through to advanced levels.
