Jean Appolon Expressions’ Teen Apprentice Audition 2019/20 at The Dance Complex

Established in 2017, Jean Appolon Expression’s Teen Apprentice program allows 4-6 dedicated students to take class and rehearse with JAE three times a week, for an entire year. In addition to learning about Haitian Folkloric dance and strengthening their modern technique, our teen apprentices learn about what it is like to be a part of a professional, collaborative dance company. They work closely with company dancers and perform alongside them at professional venues throughout the Boston area.


We are excited to announce that we are expanding our Apprenticeship program next year! If you are interested in becoming a Teen Apprentice, read through our requirements below and contact us at
