Professional Training Program

If you are passionate about ballet, have at least a year of experience and are age 9-19, consider auditioning for the Professional Training Program (PTP). You’ll be a part of a caring, supportive community of dancers who love ballet and want to challenge themselves.

Intermediate classes meet three days a week and advanced classes meet four days a week. Your intensive training will include technique, pointe, and variations from classical and contemporary repertory.  All of your instructors will be teaching artists who have danced professionally, and you’ll have opportunities to perform at the 350-seat Del Valle Theatre. The PTP is also enriched by our relationship with the Diablo Ballet.

Being a part of the PTP will give you the self-discipline, presence, drive, and skills to confidently go after your dreams – on stage and off!

Call 925-943-5846 to learn more about auditioning for the Professional Training Program.
