A Ballet Education’s National Trainee Program at American National Ballet

by David King

Hey everyone out there… I am super excited to announce that American National Ballet is letting me direct our National Trainee program for the 2017-2018 season. What does this mean? You can train with me full time! I am looking for a select few elite dancers ages 15-18 who are technically proficient and are at the point in their training to start transitioning to artists, and maybe fix a couple of things along the way. But, if you aren't there yet, American National Ballet is announcing their pre-professional program as well, meaning dancers of all ages can train under a Ballet Education curriculum.

I am now starting to accept video auditions for those of you who are interested in joining the American National Ballet Conservatory. Classes start September 18, 2017.

Hope to hear from you soon!

You can email your video audition submissions to : dking@americannationalballet.org

Have questions? Feel free to ask!!

Audition submissions are free- you will either be placed in:
Levels 1-5
