At the Academy of Russian Classical Ballet we believe performing is an integral part of a dancer’s development and training. We pride ourselves in providing several performing opportunities throughout the year for our students.  We currently offer two full-length productions annually, the Nutcracker and our spring performance.  In addition to our full-length productions we also offer several additional performances including our summer production, YAGP, and community outreach programs.  Performance participation is open to all ARCB students, from Pre-Ballet through our Professional Trainee Program, and YAGP participation is open to our advance level students.  Auditions are held for each performance, please check the studio calendar for dates.
