Helping young dancers successfully transition from school to career

By the time an 18 or 19-year-old ballet dancer graduates from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB)’s advanced school, they’ve dedicated ten or more years of their lives to dance, dreaming of the day they’ll emerge as a professional artist. But they may struggle with figuring out how to navigate the path from student to professional.

The RWB Aspirant Program is a two-year, post-secondary training program that bridges the gap between school and career – helping qualified graduates become well-prepared, well-rounded individuals, capable of enjoying fulfilling careers.

Besides receiving additional training in dance, Aspirants participate in mentorship, performance experience and life-skills programs that provide excellent preparation for transitioning into a professional career. The program also provides the RWB Company and companies around the world with access to a pool of highly-trained emerging dancers who are ready and able to contribute to the artistic excellence of any professional company.
