The Pre-Professional Ballet Training Division at Perform Art Studios is specifically focused on developing the performing artist for a career in professional Dance or Musical Theatre. The program has been divided into two training options allowing for students to specialize in their area of talent and interest, Ballet/ Contemporary and Jazz/Musical Theatre. We believe that it is imperative for dancers of today to be well rounded in order for them to have a versatile career in the performing arts and have included elective classes in a variety of disciplines in their full time schedule.  Students are assessed once a year by our Senior Faculty members to monitor students progression. Senior Faculty work with Grade 12 students to mentor and prepare them for the next stage of their professional training, whether it be in performance, choreography or teaching.

All Professional Half Day Program students have the opportunity to train and perform as a member of one of our touring youth companies, Dancers In Company, Dancers In Company II or our Musical Theatre Repertoire Company. Our performance companies are based on a professional Dance company atmosphere, focusing on full stage productions and touring opportunities. The companies expose talented dancers to the “real world” of training, performing and touring as part of a professional Dance company as well as working with guest choreographers and teachers. In the past, the companies have toured to England, Paris, New York and local British Columbia.

How Does It Work?

The Professional Half Day Program at Perform Art Studios allows students to attend their regular high school until lunch time and then travel to Perform Art Studios to start their Dance training at 1:45pm! Training will finish each day at 5:00pm. This is an exciting option for high school students who normally take 10-15 hours of Dance each week as they can complete their Dance earlier in the day and have time for homework, dinner at home and other activities!  We also allow students the option of part time Half Day, where they can integrate 1-4 Half Days into their schedules!

Perform Art Studios was the first studio in North Vancouver to offer this option for our dancers 6 years ago and we are thrilled that the North Shore high schools have now implemented these alternative programs!
