New Pre-Professional Training Program

Presented by Akhmedova Ballet Academy at Ahmedova Ballet Academy

The NEW Pre-Professional Training Program (Pre-PTP) is a great solution to train 3 days per week (11 hours) with our wonderful teachers without sacrificing a serious dance education.

Pre-Professional Training Program is for talented students age 12+

Professional Training Program utilizes the Vaganova Method in which some of the greatest ballet dancers such as Nureyev, Makarova, Baryshnikov, Zakharova, Vasiliev, and Smirnova were trained.

Classes are kept small so that dancers receive the finest quality ballet training in a “semi-private” training environment in which size does not exceed 8 students. This level trains 3 days per week (11 hours).

This level develops the strengthening of stability in all classical ballet movements both on demi-pointe and pointe. Focus is on the mastery of the technique of beats, tours and larger poses.  In this level begins the development of plasticity of the arms and body as the combinations become more complex and advanced.

Each student is given an opportunity to learn pieces from the classical repertoire, as well as contemporary group pieces and character dances to be performed at a professional venue on a full-size stage twice a year. Performances in community settings are scheduled throughout the year. Selected students are chosen for national and international ballet competitions.

Private instructions are available by appointment.

The Pre-PTP includes: Classical Technique, Pointe, Repertoire, Character, Contemporary, Pilates, Conditioning and Stretching, Ballet History.

Admission to the Pre-Professional Training Program is by audition only.
