Profile Last Updated: April 03, 2009
For those gifted in the dance arts, this Calgary based classical company believes that education coupled with extensive training produces the best ballerina. Classical ballet is extremely technical and thorough in its movements, creating the strength and balance necessary for those wishing to enter the professional world of dance. Young dancers are exposed to performing for live audiences through performances that enhance their experience, and regular classes expand skill levels by reinforcing the demanding methods and techniques of classical ballet.
Like most classical ballet companies, Jeunesse trains gifted young artists from an early age, starting with the bare bones as early as age 4. Classes are rigorous and precise, but reward students with an appreciation for dance and the freedom that comes with being a master of your movement. The selection of new students is done through yearly auditions, with about 35-40 students being selected in the process.
Jeunesse Classique Ballet believes that the classical ballet should be for everyone. They perform many benefit performances for different cultural events, schools, and even for senior residences.
