MB2 Trainee Program



The philosophy of Mystic Ballet’s artistic existence is supported through its unique TIC technique.

Artists should not execute steps.

The focus is on using creative imagination and visualization. Working on, and implementing TIC allows your own innermost feelings and thoughts to make it real, bringing your own unique personality as an individual, as an artist.

TIC favors freedom of action for the individual over the collective. Utilizing our idiosyncratic artistic ideology, TIC technique, an essential and unorthodox approach for today’s audiences, we create a distinct bond of conceptual artistic articulation cultivating public engagement.

“Watch some of the best dancers in the country perform live within an intimate setting.” (Carly Petrone, CBS New York)

“The uniqueness of Mystic Ballet is reflected in its artistic approach and the incredible talent of its young artists that allow the works to be intimately understandable to the audience. Every movement stems from a strong sense of passion entwined with human impulses and instincts.”  (A. Nicolic for Tanjug/Mondo, Serbia)
