WHY PRE-PROFESSIONAL CLASSES AT SDC?

Because dreaming of being a dancer is easy…but becoming a real dancer requires a supportive family, excellent teachers, a student who truly loves moving, and the time to study properly.   In a hectic world, time is a scarce commodity.  It is a considerable gift to allow a child to explore a passion for dance deeply.  For many of our students, the studio is a calm oasis where it is possible to rise to the most demanding of physical, mental and creative challenges and still have fun every day. The class schedule at SDC is designed to be as efficient as possible for each dancer while still achieving truly pre-professional results.  Even so, there is no shortcut to excellence. Becoming a dancer takes time.  With ballet as the essential foundation, our requirements with levels are designed to give each student the best possible dance experience on a daily basis.  The classes have been carefully chosen to meet the needs we see for this year’s students, and to be rewarding for all our dancers.  

This year, we are particularly aiming for classes that emphasize flow of movement and stage quality—in addition, of course, to superb technique. Each of us on the faculty of SDC is eager to share our particular knowledge and love of this incredible art form. 

If you have a question about your level or registration, please be in touch by email at susquedance@gmail.com.  Travis and I will get back to you as quickly as we can with answers.

*Classes marked with asterisks on the schedule are available for registration as individual classes and not subject to required class hours, though permission of the instructor is required for the level.
