In an additional effort to educate our students, SDCYB offers a series of Apprenticeships to our upper-level dancers.  Apprenticeships include opportunities to volunteer in various areas at SDCYB, including marketing, administration, costuming, and the alumni program.  Gaining experience in these areas is valuable to any student interested in a career in the arts.

Upper-level dancers are also provided with the opportunity to aide a lower level class.  Class aides assist the teacher by demonstrating steps, helping keep the dancers in order, and sometimes even performing with the students.  Class aides often create an amazing bond with the young students in their classes, and inspire a new generation of SDCYB dancers while gaining useful teaching experience.
