Program Details

Providing quality classes that are accessible and inclusive.

Opening new doors to challenging experiences.  

Based in ballet and contemporary training, the Teens Program offers three levels of training for teens and tweens ages 11-17 to assure that students are challenged and learning in an environment that allows for maximum achievement. Students who have trained in the Teens Program have been accepted into and continued their dance training at summer programs and universities.

  • Teens 1: 0 – 2 years of experience, Saturdays
  • Teens 2: 3 – 5 years of experience, Saturdays & Sundays
  • Teens 3: 5+ years of experience, Saturdays & Sundays




Students will explore and build upon the creative process, choreographic concepts and explore movement while creatively and collaboratively developing a larger movement vocabulary. This program is ideal for aspiring choreographers or students just interested in taking a deeper dive into the choreographic process. Students registered for Choreo-LAB must be enrolled in TEENS 2 or 3.
