Boston Dance Theater Trainee Cohort is a group of pre-professional dancers aged 17-24 who train full time alongside Boston Dance Theater’s main company of core members. The Boston Dance Theater Trainee Program is a 11-month educational experience that is immersive and designed for a small cohort dancers who aspire to join a professional dance company and want to take a gap year between high school or college and entering the professional world.

The program bridges the gap between a dancer’s formative training and professional or collegiate pursuits. BDT’s philosophy and process stretches the self-imposed limits of developing artists both physically and mentally as performers and co-creators, emboldening them to fearlessly take their place in the 21st century dance landscape.

Performers Names: Cara Burke, Carley Lund, Clara Ossandon, Claire Peoples, Carmen Rizzo
