At the Opus Ballet Center the young artist in training is seen as a whole, he is prepared with organicity and fluidity taking into account the characteristics and individual interests that he matures in the artistic field in dance and elsewhere. 

The main purpose of professional courses is to achieve the highest level of preparation and improvement, such as to allow him to develop skills and competences that allow him to face the world of work in dance, theater and entertainment in general. 

Over the years, the Opus Ballet Center has distinguished itself in Italy and abroad thanks to a multidisciplinary and transversal teaching approach starting from solid foundations of classical dance, up to modern and contemporary dance techniques, with particular attention to the development of verstility.

In addition to technical and didactic preparation, the school provides an intense stage activity, thanks to the organization of events and shows where the students themselves are protagonists. Students are provided with adequate support for the preparation for auditions, competitions and castings.

The training activity during each academic year makes use of the collaboration of internationally renowned masters for every type of discipline with the presence of resident and guest teachers through lessons, laboratories, workshops and seminars of high specialization.

This path allows students to attend schools or universities depending on the age groups (13-18 years and 18-25 years).
