For over four decades, Canada's National Ballet School has been successfully training teachers, répétiteurs and artistic directors who now hold posts in schools and companies across Canada and around the world. The program includes several pathways for aspiring teachers interested in obtaining a Registered Teacher Status with the RAD, a Cecchetti or ISTD teaching qualification or NBS accreditation.
