EDGE

a pre - professional dance program

To the Edge

Are you a serious dancer who is ready for more challenging training?  The EDGE program at BCS is a pre-professional program for students in grade 1 and up who desire serious technical training.  Age is not taken into consideration when placing students in a level; placement is done solely from evaluation and criteria in the syllabus.  Students should expect to stay in each level of training for approximately 2-3 years.  An audition is required for entry into the EDGE program.  Contact us to schedule your audition!  Students auditioning for a dance team may use their audition as a placement evaluation. 

 

3 ballet classes per week are required for all students enrolling in Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, or PBT.  Uniforms are also required.  Students who are accepted in the EDGE program should have a positive, self-motivating attitude, and should expect to be corrected and challenged in each class.         

Make it happen!
