The School of MCB is holding auditions on August 9, 2020 for the 2020/2021 Youth Ensemble! Registration will start at 12:30pm and the audition will begin promptly at 1pm. Dancers must wear a leotard, tights, and ballet shoes (pointe shoes if applicable). Please also bring a headshot, first arabesque photo, and resumé. The audition will consist of a ballet class and Youth Ensemble repertoire. Dancers who will be in Ballet III-Ballet VI in Fall 2020 are eligible and encouraged to audition.
MCB’s Youth Ensemble aims to provide our intermediate and advanced students with performance and choreographic opportunities in a professional atmosphere to further prepare them for a future career in dance. In addition to the School of MCB Winter and Spring showcases, students in the Youth Ensemble have also performed at National Dance Week St. Louis, Carmina Burana, Grant Arts Night, MCB’s Choreographic Installation, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Joining the Youth Ensemble is a commitment to rehearsals and performances from August 2020- June 2021, so please consider that when auditioning.
