Vitacca Dance Project - Project Professional Training Program
Vitacca Dance Project Project Professional Training Program

Project Description

Vitacca Dance Project Training Program is established in Houston, Texas as an audition only, nonprofit program for gifted dancers, ages 11-18. The 36-week program provides advanced ballet technique and contemporary movement coaching which acts as the foundation for professional dance careers and college preparation. Accepted dancers work with a world-class faculty, notable local artists and renowned national artists including:


Kelly Ann Vitacca - Artistic Director
Phillip Broomhead - Artistic Advisor / Ballet Master

Due to the company's limited acceptance rate, each dancer receives personal attention and coaching from faculty and guest artists. Through rigorous technique classes and the creation of advanced repertoire, the 36-week season educates the aspiring dancer on the artistic process, a disciplined work ethic and dance industry standards. Vitacca Dance Project performance opportunities take place in professional venues such as: Dance Chicago, Vitacca P&C's Annual Dance Soiree, national festivals and showcases.

The program's structure is constructed to push each dancer beyond their technical and artistic abilities and offer the education needed to pursue a long, healthy and professional career.
