Eugene Ballet Youth (EBY) Touring
About EBY Touring
EBY Touring is an arm of the Eugene Ballet Youth program. The Touring program is designed to create a positive environment where serious young dancers can grow as performers and teammates. Dancers will increase their self-esteem, self-discipline, and pride in their accomplishments. Team members will also improve their dance technique, become more precise, dynamic performers, and learn how to be responsible team members.
All competition routines are taught during regular Team classes starting in September 2023, with a potential additional choreography week for some teams August 28-31. EBY Touring Teams perform at two to three competitions/conventions in the Portland and Eugene areas throughout the season. Specific dates will be selected by October 1. In addition to competitions/conventions, dancers may also perform in a few community performances throughout the season.
Class Requirements: All EBY Touring dancers must fulfill all required classes in their assigned level in order to be eligible to participate.

Auditions are conducted similar to a class. Students are led through a small stretch, demonstrate various technique combinations, and learn a short dance. No solos are required. Auditions are closed to parents or spectators. Dancers must wear appropriate dance attire with hair secured out of their face.
If your dancer is unable to attend the audition, we ask that you still register, pay the deposit, and submit the additional information through the form linked below. Let us know of your dancer’s absence and we will either reach out for a private audition or watch them in their current EBA classes.
Notification of team placements will be emailed when Academy placements are sent in mid-July. Completed agreements and contracts for the 2023/24 EBY season are due on Wednesday, August 2, 2023.
