Pre-Professional/Professional Training Program
PTAP is a three-year certificate training program that covers a variety of dance techniques – traditional West African, Caribbean indigenous, ballet, modern – as well as anatomy for dancers, history, theory, music/vocals, stage management, lighting and makeup. This program is designed for those interested in the profession of dance as a career. Participants are selected through an open audition process. It culminates in an annual presentation entitled Embers, where tomorrow’s artists showcase their choreographic and performance skills.
