"Early training is necessary to master the demanding techniques that ballet requires of its professionals." 

We are passionate about improving the lives of  young, talented dance students around the world, by providing guidance and support,  affording them access to the best training possible. This will allow them the opportunity to hone their skills and develop their talents to the fullest.

The New York International Ballet Trainee Program allows our students to share the stage with some of the world’s most internationally recognized principal dancers, often to standing ovations and fabulous reviews.

This experience changes the lives of these students by giving them a new perspective on the work involved in this beautiful art form, improving their own techniques and ensuring that they have a better chance to compete for placement with dance companies around the world.

Each year we create another unique opportunity for young talented artists to come and train as part of our International Trainee Program in New York City. Here, they will receive training in classical ballet, contemporary dance as well as other techniques.

Our goal is to help young people obtain scholarships and apprenticeships in our program and in other renowned international and national dance programs.
