Recognizing the importance of academics and arts, Misty’s Dance Unlimited has created a Pre-Professional Ballet Training Program (PPBTP). Now in its fourth year of existence, the PPBTP has developed a reputation for excellence and track record of results.

Who Will Attend?

Middle and High School Students from around the Coulee Region will attend academic classes at their respective schools, where they are granted early release to attend Pre-Professional Ballet Training classes at Misty’s Dance Unlimited. Local schools participate by arranging academic schedules to accommodate these accomplished young dancers and scholars.

District leaders and guidance counselors from around the area have welcomed the Pre-Professional Ballet Training Program as a healthy alternative to “hurried child syndrome” – a growing trend of having overloaded students participating in after school activities until late in the evening, leaving little time for study or rest.

In addition to their dance training, Pre-Professional Ballet Training students may also be invited to perform with the professional guest artists as part of a semi-professional group, “Ballet La Crosse”.


For the 2016-2017 school year, all Pre Professional Ballet Classes will start at 3:30 PM to allow more students to participate.
