This is an annual benefit for CCYB. A fun event open to fathers and their daughters usually held in early November.
Capital City Youth Ballet demands high standards of dance education, presentation, commitment, and by professional conduct within the ballet company structure. Weekly rehearsals, annual concerts, and community appearances allow our dancers the opportunity for growth and new experiences appropriate to the dancer's age and skill level.
Auditions to perform alongside the youth company members held each September for dancers, 10 years old and up, who are taking ballet classes a minimum of two times a week.
Auditions for next season's company members held in the Spring.
