Protégé is Ballet Renaissance's full scholarship training program for qualifying students and parallels the time-honored model of rewarding talent and commitment to classical studies, prevalent throughout the professional classical training community. This model enables the development of a high-quality training pool, while simultaneously eliminating financial barriers that might otherwise prohibit particularly talented and committed students from studying. Protégé students are hand-picked, based on attendance and work ethic, and are expected to work carefully and meticulously during class-time and to attend classes consistently.

Aesthetics are an important part of the classroom and then art of classical ballet. There is a required dress code for all young dancers.
Plain black leotard (must be long sleeve, please make sure that straps from crop tops, sports bras, etc, are not be visible under the leotard); no skirts, leg warmers or other warm-up attire during the class itself; pink tights covering entire foot, pink leather ballet shoes (with draw strings tucked completely and securely inside the shoes); hair secured neatly in an "up do" (no hair decorations of any kind); no jewelry or watches (small pierced earrings are OK). All girls are required to purchase a beige-colored camisole leotard. Camisole must be worn under costumes at all times (camisole may also be worn under classroom leotard). Camisoles are important for keeping costumes clean and for preventing dancer’s skin from being irritated by the costume. Camisoles are worn like a bathing suit as a layer of modesty and provide a smooth aesthetic line under both costumes and classroom attire.
Plain white, fitted short sleeve t-shirt, black tights, black leather ballet shoes (dance belt required for teens).
Adults please wear appropriate ballet classroom attire of your choosing.
