Our Pre-Professional Program (also known as PPP) is now entering it’s 11th award winning season! Dancers train in core classes of Cecchetti Ballet (including yearly exams), Jazz, Acro, Contemporary, Modern, Lyrical and Tap with additional options in Hip Hop. The Pre-Professional Program is for dancers wishing to train with other dedicated, talented and motivated dancers and performers wishing to improve their skills in a safe, supportive and challenging environment. Dancers are educated in weight training, stability/core training, yoga, nutrition, injury prevention as well as dance history and technique and choreography in the Pre-Professional Program. Cecchetti Ballet classes have an accompanist weekly. Entrance into the Pre-Professional Program is by audition. PPP dancers compete locally and provincially, take Cecchetti Ballet exams each June, perform in our Annual Recital and extra performance opportunities such as “Dancing for a Cure” which supports our Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Dash Team.
