Everything is beautiful at the ballet


Trainee Program

Ballet Long Island offers a special Trainee Program to prepare a younger student for a career in dance. Teaching techniques and curriculum will be explored in classical ballet. Preparation for performing in Ballet Long Island productions of THE NUTCRACKER, SNOW WHITE, THE FANTASTIC TOYSHOP, CINDERELLA, THE LITTLE MERMAID, THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and various classical variations will be stressed. Students must take a minimum of 3 classes to a maximum of 12 classes per week.
In considering placement in The Ballet Trainee Program, Artistic Director, Debra Punzi, will be looking for the student’s potential for a professional career in dance, his or her physical capabilities and strengths, their consistency of attendance, self-discipline and maintenance of suitable body weight. Students who are too thin or overweight will not be accepted to the program
Many students who have completed this program now dance in professional dance companies, teach dance, perform in Broadway Shows, choreograph or own dance studios. This program will put a student on the right track for a career in dance.
