The Pro Artistico team of mentors understands that it is in working together with the encouragement of family that dancers are given the emotional support needed to be successful in their training endeavours. We also understand that the priorities set by families must be echoed in the training program selected. To this end, we have set up a distinctive program to fit with the needs of each family. We work with each dancer to create the optimal training experience. As the Centre has both a gym as well as a Wellness Studio, the Pro Artistico program also incorporates cross-training and wellness activities to create a holistic training environment that prepares dancers both physically and mentally while mitigating the risk of injury. Also, included in the weekday time is solo ballet variations as well as group choreography preparation for local and international festivals and performances. Groups prepared can include classical ballet, neo-classical ballet, contemporary, modern, lyrical, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre and tap. Dancers can perform stylings based on individual interests as well as optional solos in all genre of dance styles are available.
The dress code for ballet class changes based on the different levels, however the uniform is a Pro Arté leotard and tights with ballet shoes. Our more senior dancers who are invited to take pointe classes will also be required to purchase pointe shoes. Male dancers are required to wear a white fitted t-shirt or leotard with navy shorts, or navy tights. We require hair to be off the face in a classical bun for all dance classes.
