Conservatory Classes

The Conservatory Program offers diverse training with world-class faculty and a rigorous curriculum from beginner to pre-professional levels. It is catered to dancers who want focused academic training without the commitment of being part of a team or participating in events. The curriculum applies to all styles. Each dancer must complete a placement class conducted by our artistic director, Aretuza Garner, to be accepted in the program and must take all compulsory classes for their age group. Dancers who are looking to further their training may audition for the ODC Company, which includes many performances and ballet competitions.
