Dancers considered to have company potential will be accepted into our Trainee Program. This program is specifically designed for younger dancers who aspire to use their gifts of dancing as a ministry. While being a trainee, dancers receive special training, both technically and in discipleship courses. Trainees will take the weekly company classes in addition to their own classes. In order to give them insight and experience with ministry, Trainees will have the opportunity travel with the company to certain performances in churches or other venues and perform as a part of the company's repertoire. This provides them with ministry experience as well as being able to watch company members perform and minister.
A big part of the heart of In His Steps is mentoring and teaching dancers to grow spiritually as well as improving their technical ballet skills. The Trainee Program provides this for its members. The program's length varies for each dancer, and upon completing the program, dancers will be accepted into In His Steps as company members. Company dancers dance Principal roles in each of the Company's original ballets. Trainees may be promoted to Company at any age.
