Accelerated Dance Program

By Audition Only

Private Auditions available upon request (throughout the year)

Accelerated Dancers study a graded level pre-professional curriculum designed to prepare students for our DDANW Competitive Company and collegiate or company dance after graduation. Accelerated dancers perform throughout the year, participate in our Holiday performance and travel to Disney parks every two years to experience professional level workshops  as well as perform on stage in the park.  Dancers train in Ballet, Tap and Jazz two days a week, with a focus on conditioning and applied ballet technique with certified PBT instructors.

PBT - Progressing Ballet Technique (Registered Trademark)

This innovative program was developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet. Dancers will learn to activate the correct muscles and strengthen their technique.

Activate, tone, and stretch using ballet based exercises. This Pilates-type training as part of our curriculum, will challenge you and give you a great workout to develop and tone your body. With the help of training equipment, you will strengthen your balance, flexibility, and muscle control.
