Auditions for our Youth Company
MTYB holds yearly auditions for the serious dance student wishing to further his/her dance training.
As a member of MTYB, dancers are required to be enrolled in a minimum number of dance classes
per week at the studio of his/her choice. Rehearsals for MTYB will be scheduled outside of class
time. MTYB will offer master classes and workshops throughout the year, as well as performance
opportunities. Our goal is to supplement a student's current dance program by offering additional
training and scholarships. Candidates for the MTYB Academy may also audition at this time.
