Pre-Professional Program

The School of Nimbus Dance Works offers a rigorous Pre-Professional program designed for advanced teenage students ages 13-18; Nimbus Pre-Professional students receive the training required for a possible career in the professional dance world and for entrance to competitive college dance programs. The Pre-Professional program consists of at least 6 ballet/modern dance technique classes a week. Students must audition for the Pre-Professional program and be at level IV in all technique classes.

Pre-Professional students also participate in Opportunity Knocks, a series of conversation-based seminars on time management, self-development, college prep, and team-building.

Each year Nimbus Pre-Pro students audition and are accepted into some of the country’s top college dance programs. For more information on the Pre-Professional program contact
