Teacher Assistant (T.A.) Program

Each year Project Ballet selects a handful of our oldest, most responsible and most accomplished dancers to serve as Teacher Assistants. These T.A.'s assist our faculty with our Preschool Ballet, Preparatory Ballet and Ballet 1 classes. Through this program the T.A.'s have the opportunity to mentor our younger dancers, serve as a Teacher's Aide in the classroom, substitute teach, and begin their training in our syllabus to perhaps one day become a member of our faculty.

The 2018-2019 T.A.'s are (from left to right): Carolann, Lucy, Samantha, Hannah and Evelyn. Learn a little bit more about our T.A.'s below!
