Ballet Áthas Youth Ballet Company will be auditioning for new members at the beginning of September 2019.
Auditions are open to male and female dancers aged 10 - 21, and although it is preferred for candidates to be working at a Grade 5 level or above, this is not a barrier to entry. Similarly, those girls already doing some pointe work are asked to bring their shoes to the audition, but those not yet on pointe are not excluded, depending on general dancing ability and - very importantly - level of dedication!
To apply to audition, please supply the following basic information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org: - Name of dancer - Age of dancer - Ballet Class level or number of years in training - Name of usual ballet school / teacher - Any health issue we may need to be aware of (again, not necessarily a barrier to entry)
Rehearsals will normally be held from 10.30am - 3.00pm every Sunday right through to end December.
Our major show is provisionally set for the last weekend in April, and again last week of November. We also participate in the Dance Platform at the Helix in mid June and mid November.
It is also possible to attend our open company classes every Sunday from 10.30am-12.00pm. This is a good way to get to know the Company and to get a head start in the process! Open classes are held at St Catherine's Sports Centre, Marrowbone Lane, Dublin 8. You would be very welcome to attend any of these. A €15 drop in fee applies per open class.
