The Center for Ballet Arts is also home to the “Ballet Arts Junior Ensemble” (Jr. BAE), a precursor to the Ballet Arts Ensemble.
The Junior Ensemble gives students the opportunity to further their ballet experience outside of their regular class curriculum, with a focus on performance. Jr. BAE members are invited to participate in at least one ballet number in the BAE Fall Concert and at least one additional ballet number in the Center’s Spring Recital.
Students in Grade 6 and higher in Ballet IIIA or above are eligible for the Junior Ensemble. Members of the Jr. BAE are required to take a minimum of four weekly classes, including at least two ballet/pointe classes and one modern dance class. Members enrolled in Jazz IIA or above may also choose to participate in the Tap and Jazz Ensemble II.
