Ad Deum’s Professional Dance Training & Mentorship Program (PDTMP)

Ad Deum initiated PDTMP to help serve the technical, artistic, and spiritual development of vocational dance artists. PDTMP is designed to encourage, enhance, challenge, affirm, and strengthen dancers for the integrated disciplines of spirit, soul, and body. This is accomplished in an environment that exhibits the core values of community, caregiving, compassion, character, excellence, artistic discipline and personal integrity. The Ad Deum community also fully embraces the virtues and vibrancy of Christian faith, prayer, worship, and Biblical Worldview Studies.

Dancers in the program meet three days per week, Tuesday - Thursday from 8:30am -2pm and 1/2 day on Fridays. PDTMP members take the morning professional Company classes with the artists of Ad Deum. Company classes vary daily between classical ballet and modern dance techniques of Graham, Horton, and Limon. Dancers also have their own daily additional classes which include jazz, improvisation, dance in worship, choreography, rehearsals, and Art and Theology studies. PDTMP dancers will be offered several opportunities throughout the season to participate in outreach performances. 

Faculty members are experienced professional dance educators and choreographers with performing and teaching backgrounds with Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham, Jose Limon, Mark Morris, Houston Ballet and other worldwide professional dance organizations.

PDTMP is a tuition based program. Tuition is divided into a nine month pay period from September - May. Monthly tuition is $400. If the nine months are fully paid in advance, tuition is reduced to the total
of $3,200. The start date is Tuesday September 5th. The program completes the last week of May and offers a complimentary a summer intensive week in early June.

Ad Deum will help assist PDTMP dancers in finding employment opportunities as dance, Pilates, or Group Exercise teachers in local dance schools and fitness centers.
