Dedicated ChiArts staff provide students with the highest quality arts and academic education. In order to realize the benefits of this well-rounded education, every student and parent is required to make a commitment to the rigors of this unique program. Discipline, respect, a positive attitude, willingness to learn and find new ideas, dedication, thorough preparation for class, and regular attendance are vital components for the success of the student.  

The Dance Conservatory is designed to provide dancers with a solid foundation in classical ballet, modern dance techniques and a variety of dance styles, contributing to the development of the whole  dancer. 

The goal of the program is to establish a solid foundation with which students can begin to progressively develop their skills as a professional dancer and beyond. The Dance Conservatory is committed to providing a high level of instruction and experiences that will prepare students to study dance at the college level or enter a professional dance training program.

The Conservatory provides professional training by instructors who have experience working with world-renowned teachers, performers, choreographers and companies. Helping students understand how movement plays a vital role in their lives is a driving force for our teaching artists. Our courses focus on academic quality, technique, and cultural experience reflecting thoughtfulness, refinement and transparency.

Students of all abilities may audition for admission into the Dance Conservatory. ChiArts recognizes the need to provide opportunities for students who have had prior instruction in dance, as well as students who have not had prior training but demonstrate a strong natural ability and a desire to learn.
