:: Preparatory Classes for Auditions
We consider that candidates need to be taking a minimum of six hours of dance classes per week, combined with related physical training to be at the level required for admission.
In this respect, LADMMI offers preparatory classes for auditions. Although these courses do not guarantee admission into either of the professional training programs, they are an excellent way to prepare and they give the students an opportunity to discover the basics of training in contemporary dance. These courses also provide an ideal platform to evaluate the student’s potential for dealing with the intensity of advanced training.
A classification session is held during the first week of each session to determine the participants’ ability to take the course.
All dancers who have taken at least two years of training in dance (contemporary, classical, jazz or other) are welcome to join this program.
They must also:
- be at least 15 years old;
- be in good health;
- have a passion for dance; and
- want to pursue a career in dance.
For course descriptions, admission criteria, the schedule and fees, consult the current program.

I took the professional training preparatory program in the fall and would like to register for the winter session. The courses have already begun. Can I still register?
You may still take part in the technical classes of the preparatory courses on a per-lesson basis. You can either pay the fee for each lesson you attend or purchase a series of ten coupons for the remainder of the session.
Do you have to take the preparatory courses in the fall session before taking them in the winter or spring session?
Not necessarily. You can register at the start of each session.
Is there a warm-up period before the beginning of the technique class?
Each dancer warms up individually before the technique class. It is recommended that you arrive at least 20 minutes ahead of time to limber up. Participants registered for the complete program also have access to the training room after 4:00 p.m.
