This program will allow participating students to perform a classical variation for a panel of ballet professionals from OB and an audience of family and friends on Saturday, May 6th, 2023 in the HOBC Theatre. All students will receive a written evaluation of their performance from the panel.
Several variations will be selected by the faculty to be taught and worked on during scheduled coaching sessions during weekends listed below leading up to the event. The variation coaches will then select which variation participating students will perform. Separate coaching will be given by Orlando Ballet Company members and Orlando Ballet School Faculty.
Eligibility: Students ages 11+. OBS faculty will determine eligibility to participate en pointe.
Participation Fee: $150
