Apprentices

The Oregon Ballet Theatre Apprentice Program is for young dancers of outstanding ability who wish to further develop their skills in pursuit of a professional career in ballet.

Apprentices take company class every day along with school classes as determined by the Artistic Director. Apprentices perform and tour with the professional company, receive a weekly stipend, pointe shoes and per diem and hotel for performances outside the Portland area.

OBT apprentices have gone on to dance with almost every major company in the United States. It is important to note that 12 current company members were former company apprentices with Oregon Ballet Theatre.
