Vitacca Vocational School for Dance is committed to the intellectual vitality of the community by providing a foundation for development of the art of dance. Vitacca fosters emerging dancers, choreographers and educators through world-class coaching, artistic collaborations, and professional performances that advance dance as a medium and provoke thought.
Under the Artistic Direction of Kelly Ann Vitacca, Vitacca Vocational School For Dance is established in Houston, Texas as a school for gifted dancers, ages 5-19. Vitacca provides advanced ballet technique, modern and contemporary movement coaching which acts as the foundation for professional dance careers and college preparation. Dancers work with a world-class faculty, notable local artists and renowned national artists. Due to the school’s limited acceptance rate, each dancer receives personal attention and coaching from faculty and guest artists. Through rigorous technique classes and the creation of advanced repertoire, the school educates the aspiring dancer on the artistic process, a disciplined work ethic and dance industry standards.
Vitacca Vocational School For Dance offers primary, pre-professional and professional training programs for the focused dancer. The school’s curriculum and culture is designed to push each dancer beyond their technical and artistic abilities and offer the education needed to pursue a long, healthy and professional career.
Among many achievements, Vitacca has received: Outstanding School, Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), Outstanding Choreographer YAGP, and both junior and senior Top 20 YAGP NY Finalist in 2015 and 2017.
