This program takes place over the school year (from September to the end of July).


• To achieve a pre-professional technical and artistic level in order to find a commitment in a national / international company or a theater

• Preparation for the EAT (technical aptitude exam), the first essential step in obtaining the DE (State diploma) in the teaching of classical, contemporary or jazz dance

• Familiarize students with working conditions within a professional company through trips and stages abroad or through external contributors during the year

Student education is done via the CNED. We also benefit from the support of volunteer teachers to monitor the school career and provide support if necessary.

This project was born in 2017 following numerous requests from students wishing to follow a more in-depth course in dance and the support and encouragement of many colleagues.
