The Dance Center of San Antonio announces annual auditions for the Pre-Professional Training Program, Day Program Division.  Auditions will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 17, 2018.  The DCSA Pre-Professional Day Program provides essential training to the most advanced and dedicated students.  Dancers in this division meet daily, for increased hours of training, as they work to perfect the skills already acquired in foundational levels of classical ballet. There is a greater emphasis in the Day Program curricula on mastering artistry and performance skills, with the goal to prepare students for professional careers in dance.  


Pre-Professional Day Program students will work with DCSA Artistic Director and Founder, Vanessa Bessler, named Outstanding Teacher of the Year for 3 consecutive years at Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), along with our top-notch faculty.  Additionally, Day Program students will participate in our strengthening and cross-training program along with a variety of classes that support future careers in dance including contemporary and modern dance.  Students are encouraged to complete their high school education through the DCSA Academy, a college preparatory academic program for dancers. DCSA Academy partners with two highly ranked online education programs that currently provide education to dancers in the Houston Ballet Academy and American Ballet Theatre. Current DCSA Pre-Professional Training Program dancers have have achieved high academic standards and placements,  as well as being awarded training scholarships and recognitions at multiple YAGP competitions in 2016, 2017, and 2018.  Financial aid available.
