Youth Ballet Company
Alabama River Region Ballet Youth Company
Classical Ballet technique is the basis for all forms of dance. In the Alabama River Region Ballet Youth Company we will focus on a strong foundation in Classical Ballet, first and foremost. Company members will also experience workshops and performances in Contemporary Ballet and Modern Dance to further their dance education.
Learning and practicing the art of ballet has lifelong benefits, both mentally and physically. The Alabama River Region Ballet Youth Company will focus on the individual talents of each dancer with the desire to form a diverse, but harmonious company of young dancers.
We are thrilled to be bringing this new school to Montgomery and the River Region and are looking forward to seeing many fresh and talented young dancers at our auditions!
