“Many young dancers possess the talent and desire to become professionals, but lack the intensity of training required.” says artistic director Colleen Smith. “Daily classes offering the highest level of curriculum, as well as real life rehearsal and stage experience will guide the young dancer’s technique and artistry. A traineeship with Ballet Palm Beach will afford the aspiring professional a drastic acceleration in training.”
