Ballet Company

Ballet Company

The Twin Cities Ballet Company is under the direction of Ekaterine Bezirgani. The company was formed in 1980 with the goal of presenting quality ballet performances for Central Illinois communities and to provide serious ballet students with the opportunity to prepare for a future career in dance. 

Ballet Company includes three levels of skill: Apprentice Company, Junior Company and Senior Company. A dancer who has mastered Ballet 5 may be ready to audition for a place within the Ballet Company. 

Auditions

Company positions are filled by audition only. Open auditions are held every year prior to the start of our class year.
