The transition program is tailored to the younger student (between 11-16 years) keeping in mind their physical and emotional readiness for full time training. The program is led by Academy Principal, Jasmina Stefkovski in the Vaganova method of training. The aim of the program is to further develop and elevate the artistry and technique of serious-minded students who strive to have a professional career in ballet and in preparation of entering a full time school that is attached to a renowned company. It is also designed to expose young dancers who demonstrate talent and potential for classical ballet to the rigours of full time training whilst being sensitive to the students age and growing bodies as well as the importance of maintaining regular academic studies.
Students of the transition program train between 25-35 hours per week in a carefully structured program that is designed to allow them to have a greater balance and equal focus of their school work and classical training. The program is catered towards students studying via Distance Education or are home schooled and is modelled on international standards of teaching and curriculum to ensure students are trained to an exceptional standard.
