Mass Ballet Ensemble


This fall, Mass Ballet presents an original story ballet “Dancing for a Spell” about two students discovering their talents and passions. It will be performed live in the Saxonville Mills parking lot on October 24, 2020 at 1:00 PM (rain date October 25). All Ensemble dancers will be featured.

In 2020, dancers may register for Ensemble for the entirety of the Trimester (12 weeks).  Dancers may not add Ensemble to their schedule after September 24th.  This is because of how we are managing Nutcracker rehearsals and casting in small groups.  We will also be starting Ensemble Nutcracker rehearsals while we are putting final touches on Mass Ballet’s 1st LIVE Socially Distant Live Outdoor PerformanceIt simply is not possible to be as flexible and forgiving as in past years.

The Mass Ballet Ensemble is a group for dancers who want additional opportunities to perform! Each Ensemble member will focus on their own development as emerging individual artists, but also learn how integral each member in a cast is in supporting the overall experience. Dancers will also learn extra choreography of the Nutcracker as understudies, preparing for future opportunities to perform key roles. Ultimately, the Mass Ballet Ensemble gives young dancers a first hand experience into what it is like to participate in a performing ballet company.

Any Intermediate foundation or higher in a minimum of 3 ballet classes plus 1 jazz or modern class is eligible to enroll in the Performance Ensemble.

Any Ballet 4 & 5 student enrolled in a minimum of 2 ballet classes plus 1 non-ballet class (jazz, modern, contemporary, tap or hip hop) is eligible to enroll in the Jr. Performance Ensemble.
