Each dancer will have the opportunity to perform at the end of each semester in an in-studio or stage performance. Dancers may also, upon teacher discretion, participate in local, national and potentially international competitions. Performance opportunties are vital to a dancer's development as the studio floor is effectively the practice stage. These live performance situations also provide parents, care givers and friends the opportunity to see and celebrate their dancer’s progress at least twice per academic year. The Conservatory follows and is intersted in participating in the annual Connecticut Classic, the Youth American Grand Prix and World Ballet Competition competitions.
