Conservatory Training Program

Brooklyn Ballet’s Conservatory Training Program is a pre-professional dance program that prepares young dancers with the professional skills to aspire towards college dance programs and professional dance careers.

Through daily classes, workshops, attending seminars and professional dance concerts, our students receive a well-rounded dance education. This course will prepare young dancers to understand and experience the rigor of ballet and modern technique and prepare them for a professional environment. Our students will learn diverse approaches towards dance technique and performance from our well-respected international faculty members. Our faculty members are certified teachers and dance professionals having experience and degrees from the Cuban National Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Limon Dance Company, The Juilliard School, Hunter College, New York University, San Francisco Ballet, Colorado Ballet, and Ballet Hispanico to name a few. Many of our dancers who graduated from our Conservatory Training Program have gone on to receive scholarships to pre-professional summer intensives, pre-professional arts high school programs, college dance programs and dance professionally in companies around the world.

Student leveling and readiness for starting pointe lessons are decided by the School Director with consideration from faculty members. See Article: Am I ready for Pointe? for more details on decision making regarding pointe lessons.

As Ballet is an art form that is learned as a group, outside private lessons are not encouraged. If a student is preparing for a specific audition, please see the School Director to organize specific rehearsal time. Do not contact Brooklyn Ballet teachers directly.
