Pre-Professional Program

Scroll down to see class schedule for ages 6 to adult.

Vero Classical Ballet’s Pre-Professional Program for ages 6 and up is based on the world-renowned Vaganova Method which has produced such famous dancers as Baryshnikov, Makarova, Nureyev, Ulanova, and many more. While the Vaganova technique is our principal teaching method, VCB does not use it to the exclusion of others (i.e. Balanchine, Bournonville, etc).

Besides teaching an illustrious method with a proven track record, VCB believes that there are other important attributes to excellence in training dancers. VCB focuses on the students’ strengths while teaching them to overcome their weaknesses.  Additionally, since classical ballet is a performance art form, we strive to give the students stage time in addition to their rigorous training. Students in the Pre-Professional Program will have the opportunity to perform variations and pas de deux from the classical repertoire.
