We are thrilled to offer our new session of classes at Mendocino Ballet including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, and Modern Dance! We have a new Jazz/Contemporary Dance class for ages 7-9 on Monday from 4:15-5:15 pm and a Jazz /Contemporary class for ages 10-14 on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm, both taught by Mendocino Ballet Company Dancer, Olivia Kubin. For Teen/Adults, we have a new Ballet class on Monday from 7:00-8:00 pm taught by Miranda Stearns.
Our program provides professional dance training and performance opportunities in a positive, non-competitive and safe learning environment with an age appropriate curriculum. Instructors bring years of professional dance training and performance experience, along with their passion for dance, to the classroom. Family friendly waiting areas provide a safe place to watch classes. Students will have the chance to show off what they have learned in special performances for families and friends including our annual "Nutcracker", Spring and Year-end performances. Students in classes at Mendocino Ballet and ages 6 and up will have the opportunity to perform in our production of the “Nutcracker” which will performed on December 20, 21, & 22, 2019 at the Mendocino College Center Theater. A $110 Rehearsal and Costume Inventory/Cleaning Fee is charged for each role. (Remember, students enrolled in the Art of Classical Ballet program do not pay this fee. These students pay an annual Performance Fee.) Our year end show, “Dance Classics” as well as a one act story Ballet, is held in the spring and includes dancers enrolled in classes for ages 5-7. Students enrolled in the Pre-Ballet classes for ages 3-5 (6) will have the opportunity to perform in an informal studio performance for families and friends at the end of the winter/spring session. Date to be announced.
