KP3: Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program

KP3 students 2020-2021

Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program (KP3) provides a comprehensive training curriculum for dancers ages 8 to 18 who are committed to intensive dance training. The KP3 program combines rigorous training in modern dance, ballet, jazz, and hip hop to create well-rounded and versatile dancers.

Program Participation 

Participation in the KP3 program requires a serious semester-long commitment from both the student and their family. KP3 dancers choose their own flexible schedule, studying contemporary dance, classical ballet, pointe, jazz, and hip hop in a nurturing class environment focused on proper alignment and technique as well as developing the heart and mind of a dancer.

Required Class Attire 

KP3 dress code is designed to encourage unity, discipline, and improved concentration among our students. All KP3 students are required to attend classes in dress code indicated in the KP3 Handbook.

 If you have questions about the KP3 program, please contact Sarah Gonzales (Sarah@KeshetArts.org).

Deadline to register for the Spring 2021 semester is January 8, 2021
