Founded in 2015, the School of MCB’s Youth Ensemble (formerly Student Performance Company) aims to provide our most advanced students with performance opportunities in a professional atmosphere to further prepare them for a future career in dance. Learn more about our Youth Ensemble dancers here!

In addition to the School of MCB Winter and Spring showcases, students in the Youth Ensemble also have an opportunity to perform with the Missouri Contemporary Ballet. This includes productions such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and MCB’s annual choreographic installation.

Students in Ballet III and above are eligible to audition, and auditions are held annually in August.

The Youth Ensemble is a tremendous opportunity for students, but also a serious commitment. Please carefully read the Youth Ensemble Contract to ensure you are able to give the time and effort required.
