This unique training approach prepares students to grow into versatile dancers who are inquisitive, determined, artistically focused, and demonstrate exceptional work ethic. VAB’s Vocational Division dancers benefit from numerous performance opportunities throughout the year, ensuring they develop the skills to sustain the mental and physical demands required of a professional artist. Individual students may be selected to receive additional coaching in preparation for domestic and international competitions. Acceptance into VAB’s Vocational Division programs is by audition only.
