trainee program 


The Stavna Ballet Trainee Program offers artistic, advanced students a way to transition from the academic ballet setting into the world of professional dance. The Stavna Ballet Trainee Program enables the aspiring dancer to pursue formal dance training and gain valuable performance experience with a professional company.

Trainees represent the most advanced level of the Stavna Ballet and are required to take a full course of study, which includes ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, contemporary, pas de deux and variations. Stavna Ballet Trainees rehearse and perform alongside the professional company. Costumes and shoes will be provided for use in all company productions.


The Stavna Ballet Trainee Program is tuition based. Merit scholarships are awarded to each trainee and financial aid is available to those who qualify.
