The Trainee Program is a rigorous program in which students train in ballet and other dance disciplines. Trainees rehearse and perform classical and contemporary works and have the opportunity to work with world-renowned guest choreographers. The personal attention and guidance by The School of Pennsylvania Ballet Faculty will help prepare each student for his/her dance future. Trainees who are invited back for a second year and complete two consecutive years of study in this program will receive a certificate of training upon completion of their second year.  Students in the Trainee program have increased opportunities to perform with both the company and second company.
