2011-12 Season Junior Company News and Information
About the Junior Company
Statement of Purpose
It is our hope at Ballet Petit to provide our students with a well rounded ballet curriculum. An important aspect of this curriculum is that of the performance realm. Ballet Petit invites its more serious and skilled dancers to focus specifically on various aspects of the performance experience through full participation in the Junior Company.
The Junior Company is a place for serious students to further study their art. Junior Company members will learn more about traditional ballet repertoire, stage make-up, costuming, various composers, famous ballet companies, etc. Members will explore a variety of choreography- traditional, famous, and experimental. Members will also have the opportunity of creating pieces themselves. Field trips to professional performances, often models of master choreography and performance, will be scheduled as appropriate.
The Junior Company serves as the core of Ballet Petitís performance group and will have the opportunity to perform several times each year in a variety of settings. All members are expected to participate fully in all performances and activities of the Junior Company.
In an attempt to keep pace with the wonderful development of our Junior Company program, there will be several changes adopted this year affecting both application and retention of membership. Please read this application carefully so that you fully understand the new requirements. These changes have been made in order to keep the program functioning at the level expected of the preprofessional group that it has become.
Requirements for Membership
Applicants must meet each of the following requirements to be considered for membership:
All Junior Company members must adhere to these criteria in order to retain membership. Failure to maintain one or more of the standards set forth here will be cause for a variety of sanctions ranging from casting deletions to dismissal from the Junior Company. Under most circumstances reapplication will not be possible until the open application period the following August. Dancers will be dismissed following their third unexcused absence.
