The Professional Training Program is a bridge between the Academy and Professional Company. A specialized program for pre-professional dancers, it is designed to further develop technique, strength and artistry. Dancers are chosen through an audition process based on their potential to pursue a career in professional Ballet.
Under the direction of NBT Artistic Director Roy Kaiser, the curriculum includes technique, pointe, partnering, modern, and variations/repertoire and participants will receive instruction in Pilates, guidance in nutrition, resume skills, audition preparation and other topics relevant to the dance profession. Trainees will also have the opportunity to perform in Nevada Ballet Theatre’s annual production of The Nutcracker in addition to community performances as part of education and outreach initiatives.
Upon completion of this program, dancers should be well prepared and will have the tools to be versatile and well-rounded professionals in an ever-changing dance world.
For audition information for the 2020-2021 season, contact Academy Coordinator Shannon Cangey.
