The Center for Ballet Arts is home of the “Ballet Arts Junior Ensemble” and its apprentices. A student may be invited to join the performing group once they have met the following criteria: they are at least eleven years of age, are working at an Intermediate level of study, are enrolled in at least two pointe classes, one ballet technique class, and one modern dance class per week. A minimum of four classes is required, at which time the Choreographic Workshop is offered free of charge. The Choreographic Workshop is a class specifically designed to provide necessary training and rehearsal time to members of “The Ballet Arts Junior Ensemble.”
Those younger and/or working at the Pre-Pointe level or above may be asked to join as apprentices. Apprentices must attend two Pre-Pointe classes and one modern class per week. All members must exhibit a certain dedication to dance by attending all classes required. Young ladies should maintain a slim physique suitable for dance. The Ballet Arts Junior Ensemble performs several times each year. A Fall Concert is offered in October, a Spring Concert in June and “Nutcracker in a Nutshell” is performed each December.
