If your daughter or son likes to dance and has an interest in ballet, CincyDance! ballet is the right place them for.
No prior dance experience is needed to audition.
CincyDance! is a tuition-free program designed to remove barriers and encourage racial,
gender and economic diversity within the Otto M. Budig Academy. CincyDance! provides access to the joy and discipline of dance education to third graders who may not otherwise have opportunity to do so. Following the CincyDance! Ballet Audition, select dancers will be chosen to join CincyDance’s Ballet Foundations class, a 20-week program beginning in January that teaches ballet fundamentals in a safe, structured and supportive environment.
Upon completion of Ballet Foundations, five students will be selected to receive lifetime scholarships to Cincinnati Ballet’s Otto M. Budig Academy.
Who is eligible for the CincyDance! Ballet Audition?
Any third grader in the Tri-State area.
What should my child wear to the CincyDance! Ballet Audition?
Comfortable clothes you can dance in. Dancers will audition in bare feet.
How should my child prepare for the CincyDance! audition?
Show up and bring your best self! No previous dance training or audition materials are required.
Cincinnati Ballet’s CincyDance! is a free program in selected schools providing dance classes and dance attire to over 1,800 third graders. We aspire to take a long-term approach to exposing children from a wide range of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds to dance, and to give them the chance to learn both the discipline and the joy of dance in a safe, structured and supportive environment. The CincyDance! program consists of three parts: The First Steps Residency, Ballet Foundations and ultimately The Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy Experience.
