Young Ballet

A springboard to working life

The Young Ballet is composed of the most advanced students of the professional training program. The entry in the junior ballet is made on the proposal of teachers, to join new creations and performances.
At least six performances a year are under training.
Other performances in Paris, France, Spain, the Netherlands and other countries are held every year on the occasion of collaboration with choreographers or by invitation of the company.
These performances are an opportunity for young dancers to experience the stage, to test their strength both in the preparation of the performances on stage and develop their qualities and their stage presence.
