Rhode Island’s ballet theatre (RIbt), a non-profit pre-professional training company for the region’s young ballet dancers, ages 9-18, will be holding open auditions at 7 pm on Thursday, August 16th at RI Ballet Arts Academy, 7728 Post Road (Post Road Plaza), North Kingstown, RI. Audition fee is $20.
RIbt welcomes talented dancers who have a passion for ballet through an audition process. At the audition each candidate’s technical ability, artistry, musicality, stage presence and ability to quickly learn new choreography is evaluated. Dancers age 9 to 18 with classical ballet training are eligible to audition.
The company’s goal is to help promising young dancers reach their full potential through a pre-professional training program consisting of weekly company class, a series of Master Classes, regular evaluation & feedback, learning experiences with leading professional ballet companies, and ongoing performance opportunities to enhance a dancer’s stage presence. Dancers continue to train with their home studios while focusing on stage performance training, learning choreography, performance rehearsals and other opportunities with RIbt.
