Master Class

The Master Class Program offers our more serious students a unique opportunity

The Master Class program is the most advanced technical study/choreographic course available within the Steffi Nossen School of Dance. The program offers our more serious students the unique opportunity to work and perform with dancers from communities throughout Westchester in an artistic and technical atmosphere. Students are immersed in the entire creative process and are taught by a professional choreographer/teacher under the direction of our Artistic Director. Professional costume and lighting designers round out the performance experience.

Master Class I and II dancers must be enrolled in two additional classes each week from Core Curriculum, Ballet, Jazz or Modern Technique offerings. While Junior Master Class dancers are only required to enroll in one additional class from the above offerings, dancers in 5th grade and up are strongly encouraged to add a second class to enhance their technical and artistic abilities. Ballet is highly recommended. Participation in the Master Class program is by teacher recommendation and audition. Students enjoy the special opportunity to perform at our Community and Benefit Concerts held at the Performing Arts Center, SUNY Purchase in March.

How does a dancer become part of the Master Class program?

Master Class dancers are selected from the age-based Core and level-based Technique classes in an ongoing review process by our faculty School Director. Dancers in 3rd grade and up are evaluated in terms of their technical and artistic abilities, performance qualities, classroom demeanor, attendance and general level of commitment.

Dancers are usually identified in January and invited to view the Annual Benefit performance in the spring as well as a Master Class rehearsal in the studio. We believe that experiencing both the class and the performance gives dancers and their families the necessary tools to evaluate the program and decide if they are interested in making a more serious commitment to dance. If so, they may participate in the fall auditions. A dancer may also be identified as a candidate after the Children’s Shows or during summer dance programs and offered the same audition opportunity.
