On September 22, 2018, the Charlotte Youth Ballet will host open auditions for its upcoming shows.  The 2018-2019 season brings The Nutcracker to the Charlotte Youth Ballet’s stage for the 37th year, and in Spring 2019 the CYB will perform the classic storybook ballet of Cinderella.

Dancers from all dance schools in the Charlotte regional area grades 3 through 12, are invited to audition.  We need you to make these shows great!  We welcome all experience levels of dancers that are currently enrolled in at least one dance class per week at the school of their choice.

Each season, CYB performs two full-length ballet productions held at the Dale F. Halton Theater on the CPCC campus in Uptown Charlotte.  The thrill of being immersed in a formal, professional ballet production is invaluable in developing and broadening the strength of teamwork, persistence, dedication and performance.  Former CYB Company members have moved on to successful, professional careers in all facets of ballet companies throughout the US.  We hope you will join us in creating something wonderful to entertain and delight the Charlotte community!

Families are encouraged to be involved.  As a non-profit we need and embrace the help from our families.
