The Prep Dance Curriculum

Our curriculum is based upon rigorous standards and accompanied with live music. Instructors are committed to somatically sound principles of dance training integrated with thoughtful consideration of students’ mental and physical well being.

We value health and wellness, and understand that there is not one way a body is supposed to look. All of our instructors are educated about dance science and the importance of a strong healthy body.

These core values provide opportunities for all students to discover individual creativity within traditional disciplines integral to the art form of dance.
