JGCO PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL
The Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet Performing Arts School enrolls students in developmentally appropriate programs through assessments to identify talent and readiness for higher skilled training. The guiding philosophy of JGCO teaching artists is that everyone can be transformed physically and cognitively through dance.
The Pre-Professional Program caters to the aspiring and serious dancer. Young Artists are developed and groomed to join the JGCO Repertory Dance Company and perform dance at charity/local events throughout the year.
The Cultural Arts Program (CAP) is dedicated to the physical, mental and ethical development of children through cultural and creative enrichment programming. The program selects more than 150 young people annually, ages 3 to 21, who are interested in studying performing arts on a professional level.
Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet’s Summer Intensive Workshops, held over a six week period, are available for the first-time, pre-professional or professional dancers looking for more rigorous training and performance opportunities. Classes are designed specifically for each participant. Professional and pre-professional students have the special opportunity to train and perform alongside members of the Jamel Gaines Creative Outlet Dance Company, in addition to receiving personalized direction from world renowned artists.
