The 2017/2018 apprenticeship program is now closed for applications
Since 2010, Cullbergbaletten has introduced and implemented an apprenticeship program to be a part of the various activities it engages in. Cullbergbaletten continually focuses on the next generation of dancers, choreographers and audiences.
The apprenticeship program is specifically designed to create a bridge for postgraduate students, leading them into the professional dance environment. The apprenticeship runs for the duration of the entire academic year within the framework of the post graduates’ educational program.
To be eligible for our apprenticeship program, you are required to be part of a postgraduate program that supports an apprenticeship placement within your final year of studies. Cullbergbaletten is unable to accommodate any applicants who have already graduated and are seeking employment thru this specific program.
The repertoire for the season 2017-2018 will be, Protagonist by Jefta van Dinther, Figure a sea by Deborah Hay, Hyper by Margret Sara Guõjónsdóttir, Against the Current, Glow by Cristian Duarte and The Mental States of Sweden in Dance by Mattias Andersson and the dancers of Cullbergbaletten. We would also like to bring to your awareness that some of the repertoire involes nudity.
The apprenticeship offers the student:
• daily training
• an opportunity to follow rehearsals, learn repertoire and new creations
• the opportunity to gain performance experience
• an opportunity to tour with the company within Sweden
The apprentice will receive guidance throughout the year from the company both in the form of a mentor and a contact person / guide from the training institute. We hold an audition for the apprenticeship program each year with details of the application requirements posted on our web site. This information is sent to various training institutions for posting.
