This program provides a transitional experience for elite competitive dancers as they move from the academic classical setting to the world of professional dance. It is also an opportunity to increase the artistic range and versatility of a dancer by exposing them to a variety of dance styles, professional working artists and choreographers, performances beyond competitions, travel opportunities, and much more.
