IPACC FULL SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM

OVERVIEW

Our Full Year Program is a comprehensive dance curriculum designed to run throughout the school year. It offers a structured and progressive approach to dance education, providing students with consistent training that builds technique, artistry, and performance skills. The program is tailored through our Training Pathways, allowing students and families to choose their level of commitment. Depending on the chosen pathway—EMERGE, ENHANCE, or ELITE—students will experience varying levels of rigor and class schedules.

How It Works:

The Full Year Program at InSpira Performing Arts & Cultural Center is a full dance season that starts at the beginning of January and runs until mid-June. This program is designed to offer consistent and progressive training, helping dancers to develop their skills over a structured period. To help new parents and students understand how the program works, we’ve organized the information into several key sections. This way, you can easily navigate and grasp the structure and offerings of our program.

TEACHER OBSERVATION

At InSpira Performing Arts & Cultural Center, we believe in personalized and thoughtful student placement. Instead of traditional grading, we use Teacher Observation Week to assess and place our dancers. This dedicated week allows our experienced instructors to closely observe and evaluate each student's progress and potential.
