  • All dancers and teachers will undergo a no-touch thermometer scan before class.
  • We ask that siblings and parents wait in their car instead of the waiting area. 
  • All dancers must wash hands before and after class.
  • Anyone entering the ACB building should wear a mask at all times. 
  • Barre spots will be marked as well as general center marks. Dancers will be reminded to keep a 6-foot distance between each other.
  • Commonly touched studio surfaces will be disinfected multiple times per day.
  • All classes will be a limited in size to 50% of our capacity.

Year-Round Trainee Training Programs

Trainee Program dancers take class six days a week from Avant Chamber Ballet's nationally respected faculty, as well as guest teachers and choreographers. Trainees have the opportunity to perform with ACB throughout the year.

Daytime Trainees rehearse with ACB's professional company dancers and have the chance experience company life and responsibilities to prepare them for their future careers. Dancers still in academic school have the flexibility to choose their own online programs and time between morning and evening classes to complete their schoolwork on location. Daytime Trainees also have Pilates cross-training twice per week.

Evening Trainee students study in small classes with individual attention focusing on refining technique and developing artistry. Evening Trainees will also have opportunities to perform with ACB throughout the year like our daytime dancers. 

Dancers have the option to choose both morning and evening programs or only one. Both programs are designed to help students transition from student to professional dancer. ACB will help students with career planning, resume writing and the audition/job search process with individual counseling and meetings. Evening dancers have approximately 15 hours of classes per week. Daytime Trainees hours will vary based on rehearsal schedule. Both programs dance Monday-Saturdays.

Tuition: 
Morning or Evening Trainee Programs: $500/month September- May, $250/2 weeks of August
Both Programs: $750/month, $375/2 weeks of August
Registration Fee: $50
5% discount is applied when paying for the full year and non-refundable.
