Acceptance to the Professional Level 9 Program (PL9) is by audition only.

Dancers invited to the Apprentice and Professional Level 9 Program concentrate on refining technique and developing artistry through an intensive full day, 36-40 hour per week comprehensive program. Curriculum includes technique, pointe, variations, men’s class, adagio, modern, choreography, Pilates, strength training, and seminars on such topics as nutrition, personal safety, and injury prevention.

 

Professional Level 9 Program (PL9) students are notified verbally of their acceptance to the Professional Level 9 Program within seven days of audition. This two-year program is designed to guide our dancers to transition from student life to professional dancer or higher collegiate education. PL9 dancers are considered for Apprentice positions with the Company. Selected PL 9 students may also have opportunities to perform in Indianapolis Ballet productions throughout the year. Indianapolis School of Ballet assists students with career planning by offering workshops on résumé writing for the audition/job search process, resources for audition photos, and through individual counseling or conferences.

 

The application process requires information from the prospective student, his/her parents, a recommendation from the student’s current ballet instructor, and financial assistance paperwork (if financial aid is needed). Prospective students and their parents must consider living arrangements (ISB does not offer year-round housing) as well as academics. Professional Level 9 candidates who have not completed high school must have a plan to continue academic studies while attending ISB.

Indianapolis Ballet will hold open auditions for dancers interested in joining the professional company, Apprentice or Professional Level 9 Programs.
