Ashley Ballet Arts Academy - Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble - Golden Valley, MN
Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble

Auditions for our 2017-2018 Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble were held Saturday, May 6, 2017 at ABAA studios.

BAYE is a group of dedicated dancers who want to broaden their dance horizons and gain pre-professional and performance experience. BAYE members participate in ABAA performances such as The Nutcracker and Spring Ballet, with opportunities to dance in more than one role; perform in the BAYE Concert in the spring; and participate in local festivals and performances, such as Cathedral Dance Festival.

·         Dancers must be 10-18 years old.
·         Dancers must attend and be accepted at BAYE auditions held in May.
·         Dancers must regularly attend all BAYE company classes and rehearsals. 
For further details, please email the director,, to receive a BAYE informational packet.

Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble members have many extra opportunities outside of normal technique classes. The main benefits are tuition-free class time, the opportunity to be part of a group which provides foundational pre-professional dance experiences, and the chance to form friendships with other dancers who have similar goals.

Performance Opportunities:
·         Once a year (typically in the spring), the Ballet Arts Youth Ensemble holds a concert featuring the BAYE dancers and the choreography they have been rehearsing.
·         BAYE represents ABAA at community events such as the Edina Art Fair, Golden Valley Art Festival and Dances At the Lakes.
