Founded in 2014, Melbourne City Youth Ballet is Victoria's most prominent youth classical ballet performance company. This not-for-profit organisation, overseen by professional touringe company Melbourne City Ballet, provides a platform for young dancers from across the state to work together in a company style environment to create three classical ballet works annually.
The goal of the program is to provide enriching team based experiences for young dancers from other training institutions across Victoria in a positive and supportive learning environment.
The company holds one annual audition each year (usually around September) then two smaller subsequent auditions for remaining placements in productions.
Youth participating in the program will generally work with the company fortnightly, for an intensive week and each week closer to the production. More information regarding this course is available in our educator pack found below.
Melbourne City Youth Ballet's Artistic Director is Yuiko Masukawa who has worked on all productions to date for the company.
Melbourne City Youth Ballet is proudly supported by PW Dance & Sportswear, Moreland City Council, Anna Tetlow Pilates and National Photography.
