Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2014 Performances!


The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Preparing young dancers to appear in the professional production is a lot of extra work, Rochester dance instructor Denise Baller says, “but I enjoy giving my students that kind of opportunity...some aren’t (going to be) ballerinas, but for that one night, they become a ballerina.” It’s exciting for the parents and families, too, she said. “It’s one thing to dance in a recital,” Baller added, ‘but to be able to dance on the big stage in Auditorium Center... well, that’s special. I don’t need much to put me in the holiday spirit, but this puts the icing on the cake.” In 2006, in response to the sudden, early death of Mary Kay Touris of Ballet Theatre, Denise, who was pregnant with twins, took over at the last minute as Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio and has been the Rochester host dance studio since.  

Dancing with Denise was established in 1985 when owner/teacher Denise Baller taught dance to children in over 40 daycare centers in and around the Rochester area. As her students grew up, she opened a dance studio to add evening and Saturday classes for her students who were then in elementary school and beyond. Dancing with Denise is well known for promoting fun, good health, and confidence in a non-pressure, non-competitive environment. Family-centered, Dancing with Denise hosts and participates in family fun events like local parades, providing entertainment at farmer’s markets, participating in Sea Breeze Dance Days, holding their annual dance recital, hosting birthday parties, Family Fun Nights, and Zumba® classes for all ages (from baby through adult). Dancing with Denise has recently relocated the dance studio to Webster, NY, where “Having Fun is Our Philosophy” will always be the center of what they do.


Moscow Ballet shares its 77 city North American tour cities with the Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation as a platform to help introduce a the foundation’s fundraising campaign.

The Auditorium Theatre started out as the Masonic Temple of Rochester when it was constructed in 1928. The building was home to the local Masons fraternal organization offices as well as the 2,464-seat Auditorium Theatre, which regularly featured touring productions, music concerts, and comedy revues. By the late 1980s, the building was converted into office space, meeting rooms, and banquet halls, in addition to the Theatre. The theater wing of what has been renamed Auditorium Center is now owned and operated by the Rochester Broadway Theater League. Auditorium Theatre hosts a variety of entertainment productions such as Broadway musicals, music concerts, dance performances, and children’s shows.
