Opportunities through BAYE:
As a member of the Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble, dancers have many extra opportunities outside of normal technique classes. The main benefit is tuition free class time and the opportunity being part of a group which provides the foundation for pre-professional dance experiences and friendships with other dancers who have similar goals.
· BAYE members will participate in ABAA performances such as the Nutcracker and Spring Ballet with opportunities to dance in more than one role.
· Once a year (typically in early Spring) we will hold a BAYE Concert featuring the BAYE dancers and the choreography they have been rehearsing.
· BAYE will enter/audition its choreographic works to be part of special performances such as the Cathedral Dance Festival.
· BAYE will represent ABAA at community events such as Edina Art Fair, Golden Valley Art Festival and Dances At the Lakes.
