In this performance program featuring the apprentices of Oregon Ballet Theatre, students have the chance to step into the daily world of a working dancer. Our apprentices perform contemporary and classical choreography and reveal aspects of their training. A pre-performance professional development workshop is included for teachers and sets up student participation during the show. Resources for teachers are provided, including a study guide and illustrated booklet that describes ballet and theatre vocabulary and dance activities.
