The Company:

The Divergent Ballet Company is the newest ballet company in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. DBC’s foundation is rooted in a never ending quest of improvement and growth not only¬† in the art of ballet but in the seven dimensions of wellness.

Company members are trained physically, intellectually and occupationally while being mentored emotionally, environmentally, spiritually and socially, equipping each individual with a strong sense of self-worth.

The Trainee Program:

DBC Trainee Program is a pre-professional training opportunity for dancers with the potential and desire to become professional dancers. Trainees are selected by audition or invitation only. Those auditioning must have a strong technique and be committed to pursuing dance beyond the classroom. The program is designed to offer young dancers the chance to experience life in a professional setting, while receiving excellent training. DBC Trainee members have the opportunity to work in a professional dance environment with the Divergent Ballet Company and gain first-hand exposure to the demanding rigor of dance as a profession. The DBC Trainee Program is designed as a one-season program,  with the option for a second season if invited by the Artistic Director.
