Academy & Junior Company Program

The Academy Program of the Cantarella School of Dance is a comprehensive training program for the talented and serious pre-teen to teen student who desires to commit more time to the art of dance. Advanced students may audition for the Cantarella School of Dance Junior Company.

These pre-professional classes accelerate talented students and expose them to nationally known teachers. Both the Academy and the Junior Company perform frequently in the Capital Region and the Berkshires throughout the year. Admission is by audition only. This year, the Program will tentatively begin in January

Cantarella Dance Competition Team

The Cantarella Dance Competition Team will be made up of a group of motivated and dedicated dance students ages 10 and up. The competition team will give dancers an opportunity to showcase their talent and their passion for dance. Students will participate in three to four local regional dance competitions, and will receive feedback from dance professionals on their technique and performance. Students interested in the competition team must take a minimum of two classes per week, with one of the classes being ballet. Students must be committed to the many hours of work involved with the Competition Team. For additional information please speak to Olivia Wilber @ 413-442-1307.
