Sharon Dante has assembled an international faculty that trains students in The Nutmeg’s training program – one that combines the fundamentals of the Vaganova methodology with a blend of neo-classical and contemporary styles. The Nutmeg offers both a year-round Residency Program and a Summer Program, each immersing students in intensive study and training. The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory is unique in its dedication to teaching classical ballet alongside a full resident performance season, thus placing equal emphasis on both training and performance skills. The commitment of The Nutmeg’s faculty and guest artists is to utilize this ideal combination of experiences to prepare students for the demands of 21st century professional dance companies. Additionally, the school maintains a full Conservatory Academic Program (CAP) that provides educational options as well as full college preparation for students who endeavor to further their academic careers in a university setting.
