General Program 2017/2018

We are excited to announce a few changes for VAB programs this year. The Foundational and General Programs are merging for ease of communication with parents, staff and students. VAB will now have two streams of General Program classes: General Program and General Program Elite. This will allow students and parents to customize the amount of training time to suit their schedules and training goals. The General Program Elite will allow students to attend additional classes per week to take their training to the next level.

Elite Program – Levels 2-7:

General Program students wanting to take their training to a new level are encouraged to enter into our new Elite Program. The VAB Elite Program, beginning at Level 2, offers additional classes and performance opportunities for students including an extra ballet class each week focused on technical and artistic proficiency. 

Victoria Academy of Ballet is the first school on Vancouver Island to offer this type of elite programming for younger students. As you already know, our Professional Training Program is known worldwide for creating technically strong and artistically dynamic dancers. With the new Elite Program, we have the ability to stream our professional program at an earlier age. This additional training in the Elite Program will help students to progress at a faster rate, strengthening and developing their technique, athleticism and artistry with likeminded, focused peers all guided by our highly trained and professional faculty. 

Elite Performance Group:

Students in Elite Levels 4, 5, 6 and 7 (the new Senior General Program) are encouraged to enrol in our brand new Performance Group! This performance group will be treated as a small dance company, meeting once a week to learn choreography of various genres. The choreography learned during rehearsal time will be performed at local festivals, VAB performances and community engagements. We at VAB believe in giving students multiple opportunities to perform throughout the year and are excited to offer this to students beginning in Elite Level 4 and up.
