The adult advanced class often has a variety of ages in that class, from teens trhu older adults. DD says it is a very good class and a very good workout. Run just like the pre-pro classes.

"These special Winter Break classes are particularly challenging, so we like to offer them for the more advanced dancers, this is true. But the classes are open for our Pre-Professional Level IV up through the Professional level dancers."
SewRibbons, there are many 14 year olds in level IV, and I would think if your daughter wants to try she should. I would suggest she not go in the front of the class, stay to the back while she gives it a shot. The pre-pro prgram at Joffrey Academy starts at level IV.

I am a mom who know VERY little about dance. I am hoping you can tell me if there are any good pre-pro schools in the Southwest burbs of Chicago.

kwdreams - Faubourg and Salt Creek are names that come to mind but I'm not sure if those are as south as you need.

Thank you. We are out in Plainfield and both of those are quite a drive, but perhaps worth the commute.

kwdreams..those two schools Sewribbons suggested are well worth the drive, if you want pre pro ballet training. DD has danced in classes with many students from both of those schools, they were all very good and have had successes after training there.

kwdreams, My DD attended Joffrey Academy for 4 years, so that is what I know of personally. I have seen dancers at the other two schools and Joffrey get similar SI, trainee, Company and college placements. Joffrey is directed and primarily taught by husband and wife team that had been with the Bolshoi, very little Balanchine was ever taught. We are in North suburbs, so Joffrey was the closest to us with the training DD was seeking.
