Ballet Accompaniment

Development Program for Musicians
Available in virtual mode during the pandemic

Accompanying a ballet class is an art form, one that requires a great deal of training and experience. This expertise is accessible through our ballet accompanist course that includes observation, theory and practice.

Contracts for both regular classes or replacements await successful candidates.

The 45-hour course includes:

Introduction to ballet vocabulary
Definition of the musical structure of exercises

Strategies for communicating with ballet instructors
Organization of personal repertoire

An apprenticeship of 15 hours completes this training, which leads to a diploma in ballet accompaniment.

Admission is possible at any time upon file review.

Each applicant must possess:

  • Proficiency in classical or jazz piano
  • a college or university diploma in piano
  • previous experience in ballet accompaniment.

The selected candidate will be invited for a short audition and an interview.
