STUDENT ENSEMBLE

ABOUT

The Bay Ridge Ballet Student Ensemble is a training & performance program designed for committed, passionate dancers ages 8 to 18, who are interested in a pre-professional experience for their dance training.  

The Student Ensemble Program was developed by BRB director Patricia Foster-Grado, an ABT® certified instructor with 20+ years of teaching and performance experience, to foster artistry, technique and over-all health. The Student Ensemble helps young dancers build their pre-professional resume and provides them with the highest quality dance education that can translate into college or professional dance career!  

 

Student Ensemble classes and rehearsals will cover topics including class etiquette, vocabulary, nutrition, musicality, proper stretching, conditioning, stage etiquette, performance preparation and choreography for performance opportunities throughout the year. Extra rehearsals may be scheduled in preparation for upcoming performances.

 

    

 

REQUIREMENTS 

Excellent attendance and arriving about 15 minutes early to prepare for class will be required for participation, in order to develop the dancers both individually and as an ensemble.

 

Committing with a positive attitude is a must!   

New dancers must partake in an audition or placement class for acceptance to this special program. 

 

For optimal training and the best overall experience, an entire school year commitment is required for acceptance to the Student Ensemble. Summer training is also encouraged to maintain progress.
