The Dancer’s Preparatory Program is designed for experienced students who have demonstrated a special ability and interest in dance. There are five divisions of the Dancer’s Preparatory Program: ELEMENTARY, INTERMEDIATE I, INTERMEDIATE II, JUNIOR, and SENIOR. All classes in each level are required. The Director determines placement in a particular program. Preparatory students are taught to work together in a non-competitive way which allows them to compare themselves to their own performance and to standards of excellence rather than to measure their success by others.

Dress Code: JLDC regulation black leotard, pink tights, black jazz pants, pink ballet slippers, black tap and tan jazz shoes. Black footless tights are worn for modern.

Please note that teacher class assignments are not finalized and are subject to change prior to the opening of the 2015-2016 school year. On rare occasions, under-subscribed classes will be canceled at the discretion of JLDC, at which time we will place your child in an appropriate class approved by parents and the school.
