Train With Us

Professional Training Division

An intensive training program designed to prepare dancers for a professional career in ballet.

Professional Dance Development

Intended for advanced dancers ages 14- 18. Dancers train 6 days per week at TBTS-Dallas with a focus in classical technique, pointe, variations, and modern dance. They will have the opportunity to audition for the Dallas School Ensemble, which performs throughout the Metroplex.

Classes and rehearsals are led by TBT School Faculty and Artistic Staff, along with guest artists, giving dancers the unique opportunity to work with Artistic Director Ben Stevenson, O.B.E., and his esteemed Artistic Staff.

Ballet Teaches Balance

The program curriculum includes dedicated time for schoolwork to help students balance their academic and dance studies. TBTS does not provide housing for out of town students but will offer recommendations for local apartment complexes and roommates. Students who have not completed high school are expected to complete their formal academic education.

Audition & Enrollment

Prospective students should attend a live audition during TBT’s National Audition Tour. If possible, dancers should attend a Company or Studio Training designated audition.

Remember to bring a resume and letter of recommendation from a current ballet instructor to attach to your audition form.

Summer Intensive

Incoming Studio Training Company and Professional Training Division dancers are encouraged to attend the TBT Summer Intensive.
