Our Pre-Professional Training Program offers the most comprehensive training in the performing arts Houston-wide. The program includes ballet, pointe, variations, pas de deux, modern, hip hop, tap, jazz, choreography, yoga, stretch and conditioning. Uptown students round out their dance education with classes in other related subjects such as kinesiology, ballet history, nutrition, and music. We help all of our students in the pre-professional program reach their own personal goals, whether that includes dancing professionally, attending a college dance program, or becoming a passionate supporter of the performing arts Houston-wide and beyond. Our faculty members have had professional performing careers and extensive teaching experience, and therefore are able to share with the students an inclusive world-view of dance – from Broadway to ballet, and all movement disciplines in between.
