MCB School Ensemble & Apprentices

Students in the Pre-Professional II level perform with the MCB School Ensemble and are considered for Apprentice positions with the main Company.

MCB School Ensemble
The MCB School Ensemble performs in MCB’s signature education and outreach program, Ballet for Young People, as well as in other special events and public performances at some of South Florida’s premier performing arts venues such as Adrienne Arsht Center, South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center and Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, among others.

The Apprentice Program allows select students, chosen by MCB Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez, to take class, rehearse and perform with the Company during the season. Apprentices are considered for Company positions with Miami City Ballet.

Performance Opportunities
Each spring, students from the Pre-Professional Division perform in the MCB School Ensemble Performances and the Student Workshop Performances, giving them the opportunity to perform in Balanchine ballets, works from the classical repertoire, or original works by faculty members.
