INTENSIVE DIVISION

The Turning Pointe Intensive Division offers an exclusive curriculum for serious dance students. Classes are carefully chosen to advance the technique and performance skills for dancers who see dance in their future as more than a recreational activity. However, it is not only geared towards students seeking a professional career in dance. All students gain self-discipline, a strong work ethic, poise, and an appreciation for high standards of excellence. Intensive Division students receive the opportunity to work with guest choreographers and teachers, take master classes, and to perform in our Spring Showcase and Sea Captain's Nutcracker. We also aim to enrich our community through music and dance by participating in community outreach. Acceptance into the Intensive Division is by invitation or audition only. Level placement is at the sole discretion of the faculty. Students must fulfill all weekly requirements, make-up all missed classes, and carry themselves in an utmost respectful manner. Parent-teacher conferences may be scheduled to discuss student's progress.
