AUDITIONS

On July 1, 2017, LBC will hold open auditions for its 2017–2018 season at Studio Bleu in Ashburn Virginia. All dancers in Northern Virginia ages 13 (by September 2017) to 19, regardless of dance school, are invited to audition.

The LBC is not a dance school, and, while occasionally conducting master classes with guest choreographers, the Company does not hold traditional ballet classes. Our expectation is that apprentices take a minimum of 5 hours of pointe and technique classes per week at their ballet school of choice.

Each season the LBC performs at least three ballet productions in various venues across Loudoun County. Productions in our repertoire include our annual The Nutcracker, Don Quixote, Dracula, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Peter and the Wolf, and more. Former company members have moved on to successful careers in ballet companies throughout the US. Contact Dance@LoudounBallet.org with any questions.
