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.
