The mission of the Teen Artists Division is to further teens’ development as individuals and artists. The core of the Program will be the Repertory/Creative Workshop, in which teens learn the craft of choreography, develop their individual artistic voices, and create their personal movement signature and vocabulary. Using the Graham Technique and Repertory as a foundation for study, the program serves as a platform for personal and creative exploration.


The Teen Training Division provides strong technical training for teens. Classes are offered in Graham Technique and Ballet with the objective of generating greater physical capacity, movement articulation, and strong technique.


For an additional fee, students in any division may add on our new Monday Masterclass Series programming. The series is held weekly on Mondays from 6:00PM – 8:00PM. The first hour is dedicated to Body Mindfulness – a rotation of conditioning classes in yoga, pilates, gyrotonics, and cross training. The second hour introduces dancers to a variety of styles and genres from across the dance field, including contemporary, hip hop, jazz, and much more!

Price per semester: $500
