What is Ensemble?
balletmore ensemble is a company experience offered to balletmore students ages four, five and older who love to perform. Our PETITE ENSEMBLE is an opportunity for younger students ages 4+, and is new this season. Dancers, attending their regularly scheduled ballet classes, audition to be featured in our Winter Ballet and featured in our Spring Show in May. Ensemble dancers take part in a weekly 45-min rehearsal (Petite Ensemble), 1-hour rehearsal (Ensemble I) or 2-hour rehearsal (Ensemble II), on Thursday evenings separate from technique classes.
Members receive private coaching, premiere choreography, additional one-on-one lessons, injury-prevention exercises, team building lessons, photo shoots, multiple costumes, and a cast party following the shows. Informal showings may be added to the balletmore season in addition to Winter and May shows. Dancer requirements and parent participation are detailed in the performer's contract.
Petite Ensemble: $190 per performance/$360 full payment with discount
Ensemble I: $210 per performance/$400 full payment with discount
Ensemble II: $270 per performance/$520 full payment with discount
