GREENWICH, Conn. -- New student auditions for the Greenwich Ballet Academy will be held in the organization's Port Chester studio on Saturday, Feb. 22 starting at 3:30 p.m.
Saturday is also the final day for preferential registration for children ages 5 through 7 in Greenwich Ballet Academy's "Princesses and Princes" summer camp.
No auditions are required for this youngest age group with one and two-week session held starting June 16. These sessions are $450 per week, or $850 if a student is enrolled in both weeks.
Saturday's auditions are for dancers ages five through 17, who are then placed in age-appropriate peer groups with varying degrees of dance expertise.
“The academy seeks students whose love of the arts and natural abilities in dance are gifts to nurture and cultivate,” artistic director Yuri Vodolaga said in a statement. “We have a history of attracting talented dancers who, with our intense training and skill development, go on to become highly successful dance professionals.”
The notable talents of GBA alumni have been advanced alongside internationally recognized dance masters, and Vodolaga welcomes this latest opportunity to create exceptional dance experiences for the smallest of GBA’s new students, too.
“It’s rewarding to see their confidence and their maturity develop, along with their poise as dancers,” Vodolaga added in the statement. “That’s one of the reasons we offer Summer Intensive at such specific age levels.”
All auditions will be held at 181 Westchester Ave., Third Floor, in Port Chester.
