Ballet West Company and Pre-Professional Programme

Ballet West Company

In an exciting step forward, the Ballet West Company is planning to evolve into a full-time company in 2021 led by Artistic Director Norton Fantinel.


The company will provide employment opportunities for some of the outstanding graduates from Ballet West, the United Kingdom and worldwide who are setting out on their dance careers each year.


They will be dancing alongside established company members and highly regarded Principal Dancers.



Ballet West’s Pre-Professional Programme is a one-year programme for graduate dancers who are looking to refine their technical and artistic abilities and prepare for company life as a professional classical dancer.


This programme will create a pathway for pre professional dancers to transition from a vocational training programme to a professional career.


Highlights of the programme include:

  • Performance opportunities with the Ballet West Company

  • Opportunity for pre-selection into the full-time professional company launching 2021

  • Work experience with international companies who are partnered with Ballet West

  • Career planning
