The company’s vision is to be the leading ballet company in Northeast Ohio

The Company is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this February 28, 2020 in a Gala Event with many alumni returning to perform and share their experiences with the patrons.

City Ballet of Cleveland is a pre-professional company in-residence at the Cleveland City Dance studio, open to dancers ages 10-21 through an open audition held in the spring. The creation of a cohesive performing ensemble is based on the consistent attendance by the dancers to their classes and rehearsals.

These students study classical and contemporary ballet, jazz, and modern to build their strength and make them a well-rounded dancer. They rehearse choreography three times a week throughout the year and participate in outreach programs at area schools. This dedication is seen in the Annual Spring Concert at Breen Center for the Performing Arts, the annual “Uniquely Cleveland Nutcracker” performances in December and performing at local and national Festivals.


The dancers are divided into two levels: Main Company and Apprentice based on their technical skills and maturity.
