Studio 180 Showcase
All Studio 180 students are invited to perform on stage at our year end showcase. This is a great opportunity for our students to demonstrate their talent in front of parents, relatives and friends. Choreography for the showcase will be set during class hours, so it is important for students to attend class regularly. Students who miss more than three classes in the second semester of the school year may be asked to book a private lesson in order to get caught up and participate in the showcase.
Ballet 180 Student Company (ages 7-18)
In addition to our annual showcase, our professional performing company, Ballet 180, invites Studio 180 students ages 7-18 who seek to expand their dance training beyond the classroom by rehearsing for select roles with Ballet 180. Student Company dancers are selected each season and are invited to perform in Main Stage performances at Rosemont College as well as Ballet 180 outreach events throughout the community.
Student Company members are able to benefit from Ballet 180’s Mentorship Program, which connects young dancers from the Student Company with professional dancers within the Company. The Mentorship Program enables students to connect on a personal level with a positive role model. Through various opportunities with Ballet 180, young dancers are able to work as team with their fellow dancers to gain a holistic understanding of their art, a greater sense of self awareness and confidence, and the tools to excel later in life, whether it be through dance or an alternate field of study.
