2022-23 Pre-Professional Program Announcement
We are excited to announce the 3rd season of the Pre-Professional Program at The Floor Dance Academy! With two season now under our belts, we have fine tuned the program and have developed a safe, nurturing, highly focused program. This program is designed for those dancers who are committed to challenge themselves and ultimately grow towards a future in the arts. By making a dedicated commitment to this program, a strong foundation will be built for entry into the entertainment industry.
Students and parents will be required to understand that this program for budding artists comes with a high level of commitment and responsibility that should be taken seriously by all. Within this program, we will provide company members with a curated training schedule/curriculum and select performance opportunities to fit the needs not only of the group, but the individual. With the understanding that each company member will have different desires and goals, we will work as a team to navigate the most beneficial path to achieve the best for each artist.
The Floor Dance Academy's Pre-Professional Program (Pre-Pro) is for our most dedicated students who have a passion for dance and see a future for themselves in the arts.
To be considered for this program, the selection process includes the review of a student submitted application & if new to The Floor, a class assessment.
The program curriculum includes a pre-set schedule of classes which include mandatory weekly classes within our 3 & 3A class schedule as well as a Company Only class with guest teachers, performance opportunities, and other industry related workshops.
Full Program Company members are also assigned either a class to assist or a semester based project.
As student ambassadors of The Floor, all company members will also participate in community volunteer events.
