A Memorable Fine Arts Experience

Youth Ballet

Auditions are finalized.

Thanks for auditioning!

Join two quibbling sisters, Lolly & Polly, as they must work together to find all of Queen Frostine’s missing gumdrops in “The Great Candyland Adventure”.   As they dance their way through Candyland, they will encounter Lady Licorice, the Duchess of Swirl, Miss Mint, Mama Ginger, and other delightful characters in this deliciously colorful new Youth Ballet production.


BRBT’s Youth Ballet is comprised of a select group of intermediate level dancers, grades 5 through 9, who are chosen each spring in city-wide auditions.   As they train and perform together, these young dancers  receive valuable professional-calibre training, while also delighting area audiences with their highly anticipated productions.

 Fine print:  Tour dates June 2- June 10 (Dancers must be available for entire tour), Rehearsals begin April 9 and vary by role but will be held on  Saturdays 10:30-2:00 with some roles rehearsing Tuesdays and Fridays 4:30-6:00.   No rehearsal April 15-17 or May 28-30. Youth Ballet Fee:  $250 and dancers are required to purchase a season ticket for 2022-2023 season.
