VARIATION EXPO

OBS Classical Variation Expo is back! Students are eligible to participate. This program will allow participating students to perform a classical variation for a panel of ballet professionals from OB as well as an audience of family and friends on Sunday, January 30th, 2022, at our new Theatre at HOBC. All students will receive a written evaluation of their performance from the panel.

How does it work? Several variations will be selected by the faculty to be taught and worked on. The teachers will then select which variation participating students will perform.

Private Coaching: In addition, separate coaching will also be given by an Orlando Ballet Company member on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022. This will further prepare the students for their performance.

Costuming: Costuming for girls is the choice of leotard along with a matching skirt or practice tut (classical or romantic). Costuming for boys will be tights and a t-shirt in appropriate colors. Costuming should be simple, and no new purchases are necessary. Costuming is the student/parent’s responsibility and must be approved by department heads.
