In December 2013, while [my son] Julian was still an apprentice, I interviewed him about his first four months or so in Germany and with SemperOper Ballet. I thought it would help other dancin’ boys make decisions about going abroad to dance if they could hear from Julian what his experience was like. I also thought Julian might have some advice to offer on how to succeed as an apprentice.
We’ve recently updated the post to make it current to his experience after a full year as an apprentice and from his perspective as a full company member now. Here are his answers.
