Memo Posted May 31, 2008 Report Share Posted May 31, 2008 You're welcome. I think the term is very misleading. In actuality - just more training costing yet more money. Well thats true but the need for post grad training is becoming more and more prevalent as Directors are shying away from hiring very young dancers in professional situations that they are not emotionally (even though they may be physically) ready for. I would say that the majority of dancers in the current ballet climate need a year as an apprentice (if they are lucky) or post grad training as the level has become so high that coming right out of high school and into a company situation difficult for all but a few young dancers. *the term mentioned above was apprentice. However, the apprentices in this situation were more school than company. Quote Link to comment
