The Apprentice Company is comprised of younger dancers working towards the higher demands of technique and performance required by the main company.
During the 2009-2010 season, Pamela began working with a select group of younger dancers, preparing them for that more intensive dance experience. Following seasons continued the work begun in 2009.
Interested dancers and their parents should speak to Pamela regarding the “AppCo” and should plan to participate in the PTDT/Third Stage auditions that take place before the season begins (usually in late August or early September).
Apprentice Company dancers must commit to work with the PTDT for the entire concert season (usually from September through June), including performances at local events and elementary schools. The time commitment includes the ongoing technique and repertory classes, some Friday afternoons and weekend rehearsals, as well as all performance dates.
