The Pathway Program offers a challenging curriculum in order to serve dedicated dancers who want a more in depth experience or who may want to pursue dance professionally. Pathway students receive a bridge to the professional dance world through Principle Dance's Resident & Guest Artists (Mindy Upin 2016 & 2017, Carson Reiners RA 2016-2017, Tristan Bruns RA 2015-2016, Winifred Haun RA 2014-2015). In addition, Pathway students have the opportunity throughout the year to work with guest artists from Inaside Chicago Dance, The Joffrey Ballet, Giordano Dance Chicago and more.


A minimum of 2 ballet classes a week and permission from the director are required to participate in this program. Resident Artist Workshops and additional ballet, jazz, and contemporary classes are incorporated into the program.
