Start the next chapter in your dance educator journey by auditioning for Canada's National Ballet School’s Teacher Training Program. For over four decades, NBS has trained teachers, répétiteurs and artistic directors who now hold posts in schools and companies across Canada and around the world.
Through pedagogy classes, academic coursework and ongoing technical training, students are immersed in the art and science of dance education. With the guidance of NBS’ Artistic Faculty, students explore established and emerging practices in ballet with the goal of fostering healthy, inclusive training environments that empower young dancers to flourish in the art form and beyond. Teacher Training students will also have the opportunity to practice hands-on training, assisting classes in NBS’ community and professional programs.
The program includes several pathways for aspiring teachers interested in obtaining a Registered Teacher Status with the RAD, Cecchetti or ISTD teaching qualification and NBS accreditation. Canada’s National Ballet School is registered under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005. NBS is also affiliated with York University and Simon Fraser University, offering students the option to gain an undergraduate degree and dance teaching diploma.
