big sister/little sister

The Columbia County Ballet has implemented among it’s company members a new program conceived by one of it’s older dancers, Alyssa Cameron, called Big Sister/Little Sister. This program is part of an ongoing tradition at the ballet that encourages mentorship of the new younger members by the older more experienced dancers in the company. In the new program each of the younger dancers is assigned to a Big Sister who will help guide her younger apprentice through the initial first years of company membership. The transition from simply attending ballet classes as a student of the academy to company rehearsals and performances involves a considerable time and work commitment.

From proper pointe shoe care to costume and make-up concerns as well as rehearsal approach and finally theater week pacing to balance out school work with the demands of this performing art are some of the elements the Columbia County Ballet Older Sisters help the Younger Sisters through. The goal of this mentorship program is to provide the opportunity for these enthusiastic young dancers to garner the finest dance experience available as they integrate these performance opportunities into the other elements of their lives. Dance students may audition for the Columbia County Ballet Company as young as age 10.

Dancers love to perform. This is where the desire to dance is fulfilled. Movements of choreography are the dancers’ voice that communicates something of value and leaves a lasting impression. The power to engage an audience through the expression of the dance gives every dancer a place of lasting impact.

The Columbia County Ballet Performing Company evolved from the school more than 15 years ago for the purpose of offering additional performing experiences for young dancers. The Performing Company is a 501(c)(3) corporation guided by a Board of Directors. Each year the Performing Company presents a season of three major performances: A Mini-Classic, The Nutcracker, and The Roar of Love. Dancers as young as 10-years-old may audition for the company.

The Performing Company has 4 levels placing each member at the level of their ability. The youngest dancers or those  with the least experience are Les Petites. Other levels are Junior, Apprentice, and then Senior Company.
