Apprenticeship Programme

In partnership with London Contemporary Dance School’s Postgraduate Prorgamme, balletLORENT hosts 1-2 apprentice dancers each year. Apprentices are integrated fully into each production, and receive a structured training and mentorship programme with regular feedback on their development.

balletLORENT is proud to have supported the training and development of many young dance artists through the apprenticeship scheme over many years. Former apprentices have gone on to lead highly successful freelance careers as dancers, teachers and choreographers in the North East and across the UK, with several continuing into performance work with balletLORENT.

Dance Artists and Arts Practitioners

We offer a wide range of professional development opportunities for dance artists and practitioners in the North East and across the UK. Programmes can include mentorship programmes, workshops and residencies, and can cover areas of choreography, teaching, community engagement, and producing. 

balletLORENT’s artists and management team have a wealth of experience within the arts, and are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and skills with emerging artists and arts administrators. 

Often working in partnership with established mentoring programmes such as The Bench, and Dance City’s Expanding Horizons Programme we ensure the highest level of quality in the delivery of our mentorship and workshop programmes.
