Ballet Apprentice Program
Prepare For A Career In Dance

Preparation for performing in Ballet Long Island productions of THE NUTCRACKER, SNOW WHITE, THE FANTASTIC TOYSHOP, CINDERELLA, THE LITTLE MERMAID, THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and various classical variations will be stressed. Students will also be assigned classes to be an assistant teacher. Students must take a minimum of 5 classes to a maximum of 22 classes per week.
In considering placement in The Ballet Apprentice Program, Artistic Director, Debra Punzi, will be looking for the student potential for a professional career in dance, his or her physical capabilities and strengths, their consistency of attendance, self-discipline and maintenance of suitable body weight.
