Be a Trainee at The Washington Ballet

The Washington Ballet just announced that they will launch a trainee program this fall. Choreographer Carlos Valcarcel will serve as ballet master for the one- to two- year program for pre-preprofessional students ages 17 and older. It’s aimed at students who want to fine-tune their technique and gain valuable performance experience before auditioning for companies.


Dancers interested in auditioning for The Washington Ballet Trainee Program should send a DVD of barre work, center work, pointe work for ladies, men’s work for men, and a classical variation along with a CV and a $25 audition fee to:
