The Trainee program, it’s a pioneering program developed and managed by the main company, under the leadership of Mr. Elias Garcia, the artistic director of Ballet de Catalunya. The program’s main goal is to offer a professional environment inside the company, for those young dancers, who they recently graduated from a ballet school.  

It combines a strong training, company classes, rehearsals and performances with the company, to achieve the required level of professionalism and experience. 

The duration of the Trainee Program is from 1 to 4 academic years, depending on how fast the dancer achieve the required level. 

Currently the Trainee Program is subdivided into 2 differentiated programs: TRAINEE I and TRAINEE II. Take a look to the comparison chart below to see the main differences between the programs. 

OUR
TRAINING

Combining personalized training with company rehearsals, classes and performances.

In the past years, there were created young companies, studio companies, etc. dedicated to train graduated students to achieve the required professional level and experience to join a ballet company. Many of these young companies maintain its members separated from the main company (if it exists), and only in same cases the trainees have the opportunity to share the stage with the main company.  

At BNC, our Training System is part of the main company, with the direct supervision of the BNC’s artistic director. We think that Trainees need to be involved in the company life, and experience directly the responsibility of what is being a professional dancer. The best way to achieve professionality is being in a professional environment 6 days per week, looking and learning from the company members, choreographers, ballet masters, and the company director.
