Pre Professional Dance and Theater Training

Kick Dance Studios Pre-Professional  Dance Program is a unique opportunity for aspiring dancers to explore the world of dance and hone their budding talents.  Our Pre Pro classes are designed to give the highest quality technical training to our most advanced dancers.  These classes are technique only (no performance).  Pre Pro classes are taught by our top professional teachers who can offer both the best in dance education as well as professional career advice.

No matter what skill level, students will be trained to develop their versatility in dance. Our exceptional faculty teaches courses in ballet technique, pointe and pre pointe, contemporary dance, jazz and tap technique, and voice. We train the entire person by training the entire artist

In addition to group training, Kick offers Pre Pro private coaching in Ballet, Tap, Pointe, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop/Breakdancing, Acro/Tumbling, Vocal, Acting, Audition Prep, and Musical Theater.   Pre Pro dancers will have an optional invitation to be a part of the opening number for our season end concert at Count Basie.
