Ages 7 to Tween
BUD Program (Level II – Level IV)
Just as a flower bud has not yet bloomed into a full-size flower, our BUD program builds upon the fundamentals of the Seed program. The goal for our Bud students is to enhance their proficiency in the fundamentals of ballet, modern, tap, and African technique. At this level, students are also introduced to additional dance disciplines like Jazz and Hip-Hop. Special attention is also paid to placement, vocabulary, dance etiquette, professionalism, and performance quality. Students will learn concentration and endurance as they become more knowledgeable and confident in all of their skills. Students in the BUD program perform in our annual Winter Gala and Showcase and our annual June Concert.
