racial tensions? in National Ballet of Canada Posted July 14 The school now has its own syllabus. That said, the teacher training program does prepare candidates to teach Cecchetti and/or RAD. As a subscriber for many years I would have to say that my observation has been that in recent years more Apprentices/First year corps are taken from schools other than NBS. I've no idea why, other than the company is truly searching for the best talent and fit for the company. Just doing a quick look - of the current corps of 26, 10 identified has having had some training at NBS. Of the 13 principals, 6 were associated with NBS.
