State Street Ballet's Year-Round Training Program

Designed for the advanced dancer, the Professional Track Program is a 32 week course that meets five days a week. Classes include; technique, company class, pointe, variations, pas de deux, modern, conditioning, and choreography. Dancers have the opportunity to be selected to participate in company productions along with the Professional Track performance schedule. The PT curriculum was created for dancers interested in fine-tuning their technique and exploring their artistic expression through classical variations and contemporary choreography. The artists currently accepted into the program range in age from 18 to 21, each bringing individual goals and expectations to the program.

Our Professional Track dancers train from 10am- 3pm five days a week with optional classes on Saturday. They are invited to take company class once a week and participate in a full company schedule if selected to perform with the company. Our faculty consists of State Street Ballet’s artistic director, ballet masters, and a nationally respected faculty. Dancers receive career and audition guidance as they work through 32 weeks of preparing for the next step in their professional career. The Professional Track schedule leaves time for dancers to enroll in college courses while training with State Street Ballet. Santa Barbara City College is one of the highest rated community colleges in America and is located a few miles from State Street Ballet. For further information please email: or call 805.845.1432.
