The ACBT Performing Arts Academy is the training ground for many dancers who seek a professional career in dance. Our Trainee program has been in existence since the beginning of the school and has successfully trained hundreds of students who have gone on to be accepted in some of the world's most famous ballet companies.
ACBT Trainees participate in daily ballet technique class, as well as pointe, batterie, and pas de deux classes taught by ACBT faculty members. They rehearse and perform classical and
contemporary works from the repertoire of Atlantic City Ballet and works staged especially for them.
Trainees also participate in workshops on teaching a ballet class, choreography, and stagecraft. The Trainees perform from October to June throughout the Atlantic City area. These performances include outreach programs at schools, community centers and special events. They also have the opportunity to dance in many Atlantic City Ballet productions. This comprehensive program provides the experience necessary to ease the transition from student to professional dancer, all while offering personal attention in a small, nurturing environment.
