Dance Gallery Studio
A New Pre-Professional Training Program at Dance Gallery Studio
With Ruth Leney-Midkiff as newly appointed Director of Studio Programs, we are offically inaugurating our Pre-Professional Training Program(PTP). We strongly urge you to consider this program if you are interested in more intensive curriculum and performance opportunities for your child. Placement in Levels II-IV Youth Ballet classes for all students requires minimum required enrollment of technique classes designed for that level. No drop-in or single classes will be considered except by permission of Director of Studio Programs.
