student  intensive

The Pre-Professional Student Program was developed in 2020 to provide the opportunity for aspiring young artists to learn about the creative processes of choreography, show production, performance, and how to approach a career in the performing arts.

High intermediate through advanced level dancers, ages 14-18 have been selected to this 2 week intensive by audition.  Intensive students work closely with members of the moSTLy TAP professional ensemble as well as special guest artists during a rigorous tap dance program.  Students take daily classes in technique, music theory, improvisation, and learn original choreography that they perform at the conclusion of the intensive. Auxiliary courses are presented in injury prevention, resume preparation, audition technique and others.  In addition to these courses, students are required to represent STL Rhythm Collaborative at our 2nd Annual STL Rhythm Fest.

Our Pre-Professional Program students have already been selected for our 2022 summer intensive. 

If you aspire to be part of our Pre-Professional Student Intensive, we encourage you to continue your tap dance training and follow STL Rhythm Collaborative for updates on upcoming classes, camps, and study opportunities.
