Students who complete our program graduate with a complete portfolio of American Academy of Ballet and National Dance Teachers Council of America Certifications. These are useful weather the student wishes to pursue a career in dance or teaching or simply to document the Level of training the student has achieved.

Students who partake in the NMT (National Medal Testing) are certified as teachers. Dance Competition students are eligible to participate in our Assistant/Teacher Training Program, which will allow them to teach at our prestigious Center for Performing Arts Dance Studio. This will prepare them to become a member of Dance Masters of America and Dance Teacher's Club of Boston, our affiliate clubs.

Students at Level 2 and above are strongly encouraged to be in class twice a week for the optimal progression.

Adult program specifically designed for mature students over 15 years old.
