Youth Ensemble

School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet Youth Ensemble



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.

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.

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

The performance company 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.
