Senior Apprentice positions are open to dancers who have either completed Paradosi's Apprenticeship Program, have come from another Christian dance ministry, or have had a professional dance career with a secular company.*
All dancers regardless of their training and dance background must train and serve a minimum of one year as a Senior Apprentice to be considered for Company Artist positions. Senior Apprentices are expected to show continuous growth in artistry and as ministers of the Gospel.
Senior Apprentices may perform, tour, and minister in both the US and internationally by invitation of the Artistic Director.
Senior Apprentices are full-time volunteers with the ministry but will have some allowed ministry related expenses paid for while serving.
Preference for Senior Apprentice positions are given to dancers who have completed Paradosi's Apprenticship Program. While we prefer to promote dancers from within our organization, please do not let this discourage you from applying if you have already had professional ballet experience or training. We prayerfully consider each application and seek God's heart in whom should be welcomed into the ministry each season.
*In some circumstances, even with previous experience or qualifications, a dancer may be asked to train in Paradosi's Apprenticship Program.
