Most of the dancers in this company train with CMI in addition to other studios, high school dance programs, dance teams, etc. Pre-Professional Company members must take 7 classes per month; at least 2 of which must be at the Capitol Movement Studio.

In addition to the weekly classes, dancers will rehearse with select choreographers for repertoire pieces on Saturday afternoons and evenings, and some Sunday afternoons.
The Pre-Professional Company rehearses six months out of the year - July through December. Fees are collected in two- or three-month installments between July and September. These fees cover the full six months of the Program, including:
2-month installment plan: $450 payment in July and August
3-month installment plan: $300 payment in July, August, and September
