California Dance Theatre’s Pre-Professional Training Program (PTP) is a supplemental ballet curriculum for the career/college minded dancer. This 10 hour/week program provides the additional training necessary that is achieved in an accelerated environment. Combined with the standard 10 hour/week training program and the 7 hour/week rehearsal process, the additional 10 hour PTP will give each dancer a 27 hour/week training regime.

  • Classical instruction from world-class professionals:

    • Patrick Frantz (Paris Opera Ballet)

    • Romy Karz (New York City Ballet)
