2020-21 Training Program Classes

Training Program Students need to choose classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and/or Saturdays.

Due to our space restrictions relating to COVID-19 Safety Precautions, we will have the following required classes virtually on Zoom. 

  • Wednesdays, 5pm - 6pm: Conditioning

  • 6pm - 6:30pm: Training Program Workshop (sample classes Juggling, Hip-hop, Bollywood, Acting, etc.)

Open Practice will not be required for this season due to limited studio space.  We hope that you will continue to practice and prepare for your classes on your own.

Training Program​s
