The Trainee Program



The School of New England Ballet Theatre's Trainee Program is a pre-professional program offering additional training and performance opportunities to promising young dancers. Students chosen from the School Auditions will be provided the experience necessary to dive deeper into their technical and artistic selves, while receiving personal attention in a supportive and nurturing environment.

The Trainee Program runs on Sundays* during the school year from 10:00am-3:00pm. Those chosen for the Trainee Program can expect a demanding curriculum and several performance opportunities throughout the year.

*Dancers in the Trainee Program may also enroll in additional classes through the Open Division.





Dancers must audition for the opportunity to be considered for this program.

Audition Information for the 2022/2023 Season:

Students unable to attend the June 26th audition should email for more information.



Committed students ages 10-18 that are enrolled in dance classes outside of the trainee program who want to develop their technique and artistry and have more performance opportunities.

(Students who are not yet en pointe will be assessed for strength and ability and will begin pointe training when recommended by our faculty.) 


Trainees participate in ballet technique, pointe, pas de deux, variations and contemporary classes taught by The School of NEBT Faculty. In addition, Trainees rehearse and perform works set on them from the repertory of New England Ballet Theatre. Trainees also participate in workshops on pedagogy, choreography, and health & wellness and have access to world renown pointe shoe fitters and exclusive fitting events.


Trainees perform during the school year in outreach performances throughout the community. They also understudy and dance in many New England Ballet Theatre full-length productions such as the holiday show, The Fantastic Toyshop and rotating spring repertoire.
