PROTÉGÉ

TMBT’s Protégé Program is an open environment where emerging professional dancers are given the rare opportunity to flourish as individual artists, immersed in all aspects of dance performance. 

The Protégé Program serves as a unique avenue for dance artists to move from the academic ballet setting into the professional dance world. Protégés work alongside company members, and experience regular one on one coaching.  This program is devoted to advancing the classical ballet and contemporary dance skill set of emerging artists. They partake in the daily creative process, giving them the opportunity to work with accomplished choreographers in a myriad of dance styles, all to encourage further discovery of their individual artistic voices.
