About Co Pro
This company professional program is designed to create the well rounded dancer prepared for all possible dance industry careers. Building on Prep Pro for a strong ballet foundation, dancers will study additional genres in jazz, tap, hip hop, tumbling and voice. Dancers will be the “go to” performance company, dancing in many production and community performances. Physical and mental flexibility, style, and artistic interpretation will be emphasized along with technical ability and team compatibility. Some may be offered assisting and leadership opportunities. Co Pro levels are labeled Elite, Grande and Petite.
As a part of the Co Pro program, dancers should be eager to participate in opportunities that will further their knowledge and ability as well as give career insight to the dance industry. Therefore, Co Pro dancers are required to attend a minimum of one Pulse on Tour event per year (higher levels encouraged to attend multiple events). Many of our dancers have already been training with the pulse for years and we believe all of our Co Pro Dancers will benefit from this experience. At the Pulse, our dancers have access to the top choreographers and master teachers in the dance industry, such as Brian Friedman, Tricia Miranda, Dave Scott, Cris Judd, Kyle Hanagami, Tucker Barkley, Gil Duldulo and Tessandra Chavez to name a few. We strongly believe this event is a positive and necessary bridge between studio dance and the dance industry.
