Evergreen City Ballet's Performance Division (PD) program provides advanced students unique opportunities to further develop their technique and artistry through a demanding training and performance schedule.
A level placement audition is required to be considered. Acceptance to this remarkable pre-professional program is at the sole discretion of ECB's Artistic Director. Students must be fully enrolled at Evergreen City Ballet year-round. Performance Division dancers receive mentorship, career development opportunities, and college prep guidance. Students receive a rigorous, well-rounded, and holistic approach to their dance education.
Some of our graduates have gone on to study at The Juilliard School, University of Washington, and University of Oregon to name a few. Members of our alumni body have had successful professional careers dancing with San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre, The Metropolitan Opera Ballet, and on Broadway.
