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 are selected to this summer 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 annual STL Rhythm Fest, which occurs during the last week of July. Following their participation in the program intensive, students will be offered additional performance opportunities throughout the year.
Our Pre-Professional Program 2022 students grew significantly during our 2 week summer intensive this past July and we are so proud. 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.
