The Pre-Professional Ballet Training program at JSSB is designed to help students excel, not just in ballet, but in life. This program asks a lot of the dancer, but gives so much in return. They will learn a great deal from the hard work and dedication that is required to train at this level – and they will love every minute of it.

Students will continue to build on the foundation of technique that is so important to dance, with ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, and character classes to give them well rounded training. Dancers take all classes in their level.

Ballet is more than just knowing how to dance — it’s knowing how to perform. Gaining the experience of performing in front of live audiences is incredibly important to anyone who wishes to dance beyond high school. Students of JSSB are given the opportunity to perform with the Judith Svalander Dance Theatre in classical ballets as well as a truly eclectic mixed repertoire.

During the week of June 1-6, we will be accepting $200.00 registration fees to hold your dancers place in their level. We kindly ask the remaining balance be paid the first week of classes, not before. Thank you!
