Co-Curricular Offerings

Co-curricular offerings are non-curricular classes and performance opportunities with professionals that are open to all PU students for no fee. Daily ballet, weekly conditioning, and modern classes are offered three times a week and are open to all on a drop-in basis. Performance opportunities with guest ballet and contemporary choreographers are cast by auditions during the first week of classes in September for performances in the Berlind Theatre during the third week of the spring semester. Students commit to 4-6 hours of rehearsal per week from September until mid-February.

These non-curricular classes and performance opportunities with guest choreographers are required for certificate students.
