Established in 2002, the PreProfessional Company is for young and gifted dancers who are dedicated to becoming tomorrow’s professionals. Dancers must be invited to be a member in one of the eight divisions of the PreProfessional Company by the Director, Tracey Bayly.
A rigorous schedule of training and rehearsals prepares dancers for performances throughout the year. PrePro dancers perform the most challenging roles in The Nutcracker and Spring Concert productions.

The PrePro Company performs an annual Spring Concert, which in the past has included classical ballets of Swan Lake, Cinderella, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, and Paquita; and original choreographies of modern tales such as Anastasia, Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, Frozen, and more.
In addition to the required Ballet Company classes each week, PrePro dancers take a minimum of two additional hours of technique class, plus a minimum of two additional hours in Saturday rehearsals. A dancer’s rehearsal time can increase to six or more hours each week depending on company level and performance roles.
