Pre-Professional Division

Dancers typically stay in a class level for at least a year, and it is common to stay with a level longer. The levels build specific dance skills in terms of strength, flexibility, stamina, balance, memory, knowledge of dance, musicality, and more that are essential before moving on. When ready for a new level, their teacher and the Conservatory Director will inform dancers and parents prior to the start of the fall trimester or as needed. Students over the age of eight and new to PDT are required to take a placement class, which can be scheduled at the front desk.
