CREO’s Conservatory Program is for dancers considering a future in dance beyond CREO. Including four audition-based tracks, these dancers commit to a class regimen reflective of the highest degree of excellence in their respective areas of focus. Conservatory dancers are considered ambassadors for the CREO studio, both as leaders within the CREO community and representatives of CREO outside the studio.

Conservatory Program Extra Curricular Policy

As ambassadors of the school and leaders among the CREO community, Conservatory dancers are expected to hold impeccable attendance in all CREO classes in order to build teamwork among their classmates and progress with class material. Therefore, dancers involved in on-going extra curriculars such as a long-term sport should consider their schedule before auditioning for a conservatory track. Pending a conversation with the CREO director and conservatory track instructor, dancers may be allowed to participate in short term engagements outside of their conservatory commitments.
