THE TRAINEE PROGRAM

The Étoile Ballet Theatre Trainee Program is designed in a very unique way. Dancers are selected by their talent and their potential and take classes, rehearse and perform in every production with the Company. The daily ballet classes are intensive, designed to polish technique and build strength and are followed by rehearsals. Trainees are also required to take weekly mandatory Pointe, Variations, Partnering, Contemporary, Body Conditioning, Music and Dance History classes. The goal of our Trainee Program is to develop the next generation of artists and ensure that our talented young dancers are ready for the next step in their careers. Most of the Étoile Ballet Theatre Company Members come from the Trainee Program.

LOCATION

Étoile Ballet Theatre is based in Piacenza, Italy. The Company is resident at the "Piacenza Art Ballet". Each detail of the studios has been meticulously taken care of to ensure the best experience for dancers and teachers: the sprung floor and the linoleum are fundamental elements for each studio, the flooring is created with an elastic structure to guarantee the health of the dancers and a correct study of dance. Bars and mirrors have been built and installed meticulously following all the safety standards. The mirrors have been designed to reflect an accurate image and the "double bars" are suitable for students of every age and height. Cutting-edge lights and air conditioning have been tailor-made for the two studios. The lighting system does not disturb the eyes during the intense hours of work and the air conditioning system ensures an ideal temperature and filtered air. Three spacious changing rooms are equipped with showers and bathrooms. Last but not least, the acoustics of the dance room have been designed for an optimal result and to ensure isolation from the adjoining activities. 

The building offers a space of over 400 square meters dedicated exclusively to dance. On the ground floor, there are two spacious studios of 100 square meters each, changing rooms, bathrooms with showers, and relaxation area. On the second and third floors, a luxurious and comfortable B&B offers ideal accommodation for dancers.
