NYC PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM
Complexions Contemporary Ballet's Pre-Professional Program is rigorous and immersive experience that provides guidance and mentorship to dancers preparing for a performing career in dance.
This rigorous program is intended for students with an advanced or pre-professional understanding of classical ballet technique. Students train in NIQUE - the official training method of Complexions Contemporary Ballet, developed by Complexions co-founders/co-artistic directors Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson.
NIQUE utilizes sound anatomical principles and cutting edge choreography to propel student growth, ignite creative artistry while unlocking the body's expressive potential, and aims to reflect the movement of our world - and all its constituent cultures - as an interrelated whole.
This immersive training experience, limited to 50 dancers, will focus on Technical Efficiency, Artistic Expression, and Performance. Students will take class in NIQUE, learn Complexions repertory, and participate in a creative process that culminates in a live performance sharing the stage with Complexions Contemporary Ballet in its performance at the The Joyce Theater in November 2024.
Open for students with an advanced or pre-professional understanding of classical ballet technique, 16 years and up.
