Intermediate and Advanced Students
NSB's After School Trainee Program is for Intermediate/Advanced students that want to train at a competitive level but are unable to commit to The Conservatory at NSB's schedule. Trainees will have a weekly class schedule designed by the director including classical ballet and other dance disciplines. Dancers must execute an intermediate technique with developing musicality and artistry. Students will be coached to transition to either The Conservatory at NSB or prepare them for pre-professional, professional or collegiate programs. Great emphasis is placed on building a curriculum to challenge the individual dancer.
Performance opportunities include NSB’s Annual Ballet Lecture-Demonstration and Showcase during the winter/spring semester and performing in NYB’s The Nutcracker. Acceptance and casting for the production are at the sole discretion of the Artistic Staff of Northeast Youth Ballet. Occasionally, Trainees are asked to understudy or participate in performances with Northeast Youth Ballet and or The Conservatory at NSB. Students are required to attend all ballet, modern, jazz, tap, ballroom, contemporary, yoga, and cross-training classes offered to their level during the week for strength and versatility in their training.
