Are you a current student at Pro Arté Centre or thinking about becoming one? Below are some resources that you will find helpful.
Uniforms are critical in developing a sense of “team” and “community” which is a significant experience in our school. Dance is more than an individual effort, it is the efforts of the whole group; wearing a “uniform” creates unity and promotes a camaraderie that is tangibly demonstrated in and through the dance performance. Here is more information about specific uniform requirements: Uniform
Calendar of Events
Students at the Centre are involved in a variety of events throughout the year. For those involved in our Professional/Pre-Professional/Competitive Programs, there are festival and community activities in which Pro Arté participates. For the academic year, the Centre follows the North Vancouver School District vacation closures. The details for the 2018-19 year are forthcoming shortly.
Pro Arté Centre students are provided the opportunity to participate in international examinations recognized at the vocational level by the BC Ministry of Education as external credits for Grades 10 through 12. Students who partake in examinations are given the opportunity to focus in-depth on technique and performance skills. They are challenged to meet an international standard and obtain a great sense of self-achievement and accomplishment from their commitment. Candidates are chosen only if we feel this will be a positive experience for your child. Not all children flourish in this pressured situation. Dance examinations allow students to develop an assured self-confidence and secure coping skills for performing under pressure. These are vital life skills in today’s competitive society. More specific information about examinations, including the latest schedules for current students are available on the secure portion of our website at: Protected: Examination Information
Students who are participants in our Professional, Pre-Professional and Competitive Training Programs participate in both local and non-local Festivals/Competitions. Information about rehearsals, performances and Festival details can be found on the secure portion of our website at: Protected: Professional/ Pre-Professional Bulletin Board
