This program is designed for the most advanced and accelerated students. Dancers in this program aspire to pursue a professional career in dance or major in dance at a collegiate level after high school. This track includes extensive training in all genres; Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz, Contemporary, Turns, Tap, Hip Hop and Musical Theater, as well as Improv, Flexibility, Partnering and additional Specialty instruction weekly. Members of this distinguished program get exclusive access to guest and master teachers that come to work with MLDA dancers. Attendance and commitment level for the Pro Track will be strictly monitored and enforced at a higher level, as the program demands. These dancers will have a demanding class schedule to give them the most extensive training possible. This program is for dancers and artists who are extremely driven and can accommodate the strenuous demands physically as well as mentally. The class schedule is 18+ required hours weekly (this does not include rehearsal). Acceptance into this program is by director and faculty placement only. Dancers in the Pro Track program will compete in pieces with the MLDA Competitive Company and are also a part of that program.

Within the Pro Track Program there are two levels by age;
ProTrack 1 age 12-15 and ProTrack 2 ages 14+

ProTrack 1 (ages 12-15): 19 Hours Required
ProTrack 2 (ages 14+): 19.75 Hours Required


We recognize that there are age overlaps, placement is done by audition and is based off from ability, focus and experience more so than age.

Because of the intensity of this program not all dancers are candidates for ProTrack.
