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.
