Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow  Ballet's 2015 Performances!

Rehearsal begins directly after for students who are cast.  Moscow Ballet’s “Dance with Us” Audition Director  will be present to select 60 student dancers to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers. Students are cast in ancillary roles of Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and more. Applicants must be between 7 and 16 years old, have at least one year of ballet training, dress in dance attire and may bring Pointe shoes. The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. “The payoff at the end of the rehearsals is the opportunity to be part of Christmas magic, to dance under shimmering lights with award-winning Russian dancers against exquisite hand-painted sets. It’s great for the kids. They get to dance in a professional production,” affirms Margaret Engle of Charlottesville Ballet School.

Dance in the Prairies School of Ballet(DPSB) is like no other in Saskatoon as it is a non-competitive, pre-professional performance based school. DPSB takes dancers back to the basics of classical ballet. It is the Founding Artistic Director’s goal to grow the school and reputation in Saskatoon as Saskatoon’s premiere ballet school. It is a non-profit organization working toward building a youth traveling company within the next five. This company will be working at pre-professional level, traveling throughout Saskatchewan Province with full length works. 

The main goal of the school is to produce properly trained technical dancers and to give youth from ages 3-18 the confidence and courage that in many cases gets left behind.  The Purpose of Dance in the Prairies School of Ballet is to educate dancers in the proper technical side of classical ballet. The School is a place for dancers to come and learn not only ballet but modern dance and a wide range of genres. The genre classes offer many styles and disciplines that are not usually offered in one location, such as ballroom and flamenco. DPSB is a school to educate what dance is, while teaching youth respect and discipline for others in the community and the world.
