    Rocky Mountain Ballet Academy’s Pre-Professional Program offers a comprehensive dance education for those seeking Russian Vaganova ballet training. For those in our higher levels, classes in pas de deux, character, contemporary and modern are also an important part of the training. Annual Exams and Conferences provide the upper students with the opportunity to reinforce their goals and to receive counsel regarding competitions, auditions and successful placement at some of the top colleges, ballet academies and companies in the world. Performance opportunities are offered through two main stage productions each year (Nutcracker and Spring Show), along with several community outreach events. We honor each student and celebrate individualized growth.
