Exclusive Meet-Ups each month: a private conversation with a leading figure of the ballet world (dancer, choreographer, health practitioner, company director, technician).

Every month each Mentee will meet with their Mentor individually through a video call to discuss the goals of the Mentee and how they are planning to achieve it. This meeting is private between the Mentee and the Mentor.
The Mentee can discuss their success and achievements and the Mentor will offer advice and insight from their own experience. For example you can discuss how great you are feeling this week and ask for advice on how to show confidence without looking arrogant, you can share how bad yesterday class was for you and find ways to accept this momentary difficulties as a learning experience, you can discuss how you are preparing for auditions, the possibilities are endless.
Once a month, the Mentees will have access to an exclusive Career Management training offered by Ondine D, and a Meet-Up session with another dancer, choreographer or expert related to the ballet world to expand their horizons and prepare for their future. The training and the Meet-Ups are recorded sessions and all Mentees are given access to the replays of the current season, the previous season and the future season.
All meetings are online via Zoom and private access links will be shared in advanced.
The first meetings with the Director to set your objectives will occur in October 2023. Shortly after you can schedule your first meeting with your Mentor de ballet. And the season will finish in July 2024.
The Mentors de Ballet are selected based on their abilities to provide the best Mentor de Ballet service: Motivating, encouraging, and inspiring energy, active listening, genuine care for others, strong experience in the ballet world, candid advice, availability and commitment for the full season.
A Mentor is a professional in the same field as you who guides you through a directive approach: instructing, telling, offering advice and suggestion, asking questions.
A mentoring session is mainly development focused. Mentoring is more about passing on knowledge and best practices from one generation to the next. Because we care about the quality of the Mentor de Ballet program, the Mentors are provided a training program to improve their skills and support the growth of the Mentees.
Both coaching and mentoring aim at helping someone achieve their goals by leveraging the skills and experience of the Mentor or Coach.
A Coach is a professional trained in coaching skills and may not know anything about your business field. A Coach guides you through a non-directive approach: asking questions, giving feedback, reflecting, raising awareness.
A coaching session focusses more on changing behaviors to achieve different results or outcomes, it’s performance driven.
