Ballet Embody invites intermediate-advanced ballet students to audition for the Student Company's 2020-2021 Season.
After much success in the 2019-2020 season, Ballet Embody is resuming their student company in October 2020. Students will be choreographed into existing and original work, rehearsed with the standards of a pre-professional ballet company, and will get to gain experience rehearsing and performing with professional ballet dancers in the Maryland, Pennsylvania, and DC areas. Currently, Ballet Embody is planning for several evening length performances in January 2021 and April or June 2021 (TBD). Rehearsals will be on Monday evenings at Project C Studios in Westminster, MD, as well as bi-weekly on Saturdays from 2-4pm. Some additional rehearsals as performances draw near will be scheduled on Sunday mornings, alongside the Professional company. Dancers will be notified of specific dates and times in advance of these rehearsals.
Requirements: Students must have at least two years of technical ballet training, with strong ballet technique. Contemporary training is a bonus. Pointe work is not required but is preferred. Students must be 11 years old at the time of audition, unless otherwise given special permission.
Audition: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ballet Embody is flexible regarding the audition process, and will accept video or private auditions with artistic director Emily Runkle. Please email Emily to schedule an audition or submit a video. A $20 audition and processing fee is requested. If the audition fee is a barrier to possible participation, please let us know.
Please contact Ballet Embody for more information about rehearsal and performance dates, performance fees for students, and student company expectations and policies.
We are so excited to start dancing again, and look forward to providing students more opportunities to perform in classic and contemporary ballets!
