Trainee Program

Our Trainee program is a nationally recognized trainee program. We annually selects students from our Summer Intensive audition tour as well as video auditions to participate in the Trainee Program. All Trainees are required to take a full course of dance study, which includes ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, character dance, pas de deux, rep and variations. Trainees also take part in lectures about nutrition, anatomy, marketing and other aspects of ballet company administration.

Attendance at the Summer Intensive Program is recommended for students who are accepted into BalletMet Trainee Program.  Trainees have the opportunity to be observed for selection by BalletMet Artistic Staff to perform with BalletMet professional company as well as the second company.

The BalletMet Trainee Program is tuition based. Merit scholarships are awarded to selected trainees and financial aid is available to those who qualify. Tuition for the Trainee Program for 2018-19 is $7250.00 per student.
