Students will perform at season mandated conventions as well as perform at local events around the City of Atlanta to promote and showcase the 3D Pre-Elite Team. 3D Pre-Elites are also under-studies to the Elite company members. Students will learn all choreography set for the Elite Company as they may be called on to fill in for an Elite Company member when needed.
For the student within the specified age range that only wants to receive training at the Junior level, this option is available as well.
