Port Townsend Ballet is pleased to announce that we have our very own competition teams! If you join, you will get the opportunity to participate in a variety of ballet competitions and dance conventions throughout the year with solos, duets, and ensemble pieces. Our main focus will be on ballet, contemporary/lyrical, and jazz. 

 

The most important thing to keep in mind is Port Townsend Ballet’s mission statement:

 

Inspiring discipline, respect, and health through the art of ballet.

 

In other words, we want you all to have fun in that competition spirit kind of way, but also make sure we are staying:

  • disciplined - keeping our focus on technique!

  • respectful - of our coach, ourselves, and each other.

  • healthy - not only physically, but emotionally, too.

 

Requirements:

  • You must be at least 11 years old to participate, and no older than 18 for our team Allegro.  You must be 7-11 years old for our mini-competition team Petit Allegro.

  • For Allegro, you must take a minimum number of 7 classes a week, including:

    • Dance Conditioning 

    • Ballet 3 + pre-pointe/pointe

    • Ballet 4 + pre-pointe/pointe

    • Jazz 

    • Lyrical 

  • Attendance is key! Failure to attend class/rehearsals regularly will result in disqualification.

  • Extra costs will have to be paid for by the dancers:

    • Travel costs, including transportation, boarding, and meals

    • Costumes

    • Extra rehearsals ($15/hour for group rehearsals and/or $55/hour for private rehearsals)

 

If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please let Anna Tallarico know!
