Mentoring program for teaching artists

Oregon Ballet Theatre is dedicated to training dancers at all levels of expertise. Training for dancers who will become teaching artists is important to ensure best practices in the field of dance education, especially for teaching artists who will work in public school settings. Oregon Ballet Theatre offers a structured, cohort-style training program, entitled Dancers in Schools, which has the primary goal of assisting highly skilled dancers to become effective teaching artists in school. It is a time for participants to become familiar with OBT’s program goals, and to set personal goals as a teaching artist in any venue.
