TTB School Pre-Professional Division is by audition or invitation only. Extremely dedicated advanced students are invited into this program according to individual progress. These classes are designed for students who wish to pursue a professional career in dance and aspire to be a part of (or are already members of) the TTB Company. An instructor’s recommendation is required for student advancement. Students partake in a rigorous dance schedule of at least five classes per week, extensive outside work, and conditioning – preparing them for the intense demands that professional dancing requires.
Additional dance advanced training styles include Jazz and Contemporary designed to further the concepts of moving through space. Dancers discover movement capabilities that lie outside classical ballet and learn the concept of “being grounded.” Drawing from the many various styles of dance and conditioning, these classes challenge student’s technical awareness and promote expression through movement where the body is the instrument.
