Eugene Ballet Youth (EBY) Classical

EBY Classical is a performing arm of the Eugene Ballet Youth program. The program is designed to be supportive in building and maintaining relationships for our students and their personal goals in dance. EBY provides training and motivational experiences that will allow for growth, engagement, inspiration, companionship and support for one another.  Dancers can look forward to social activities throughout the season that keep students inspired and connected.  We look forward to a season of dance with a vision that embraces inclusivity, diversity and inspiration for all!

About EBY Classical

The program focuses on classical repertoire that will provide motivation and challenge. Fall Season, students will learn repertoire from the beloved classic The Nutcracker Suite, which will be performed on the Wildish Stage in December. Winter/Spring season will offer students the opportunity to learn excerpts from the great classical ballet Don Quixote, which will be performed on the Hult Center Stage during the NWDF showcase and Academy Spring Recital.


EBY Classical is available to Academy students Level 3 and up. Please note that all participants must meet EBA training requirements according to their level in order to participate. Enrollment in Eugene Ballet Youth will fulfill an elective requirement for Levels 5 & 6 only if participation is for the entire season.
