Letter to Dancers


2019-20 Season; A message to our dancers:

As we near the traditional beginning of the new Season, the Board of Arizona Youth Ballet and Artistic Staff have met to discuss this upcoming year.

As promised at the end of the 2019-2020 Season, the Board of AZYB holds the safety and health of dancers, families and staff in the highest regard.  We have promised to consider this when making decisions on future performances.

We are excited to announce the upcoming 2020-2021 Season.  After careful consideration, the Board and Staff have made the decision to hold auditions for the company and Nutcracker.  Auditions will be held in person, in small groups, or by Zoom.  Reservations for auditions will be required so we may ensure we can follow all CDC guidelines for social distancing and safety protocols.  All rehearsals will be kept small as well for the same reason and health and safety protocols will be in place.

The Board understands that we cannot expect dancers and families to devote time to rehearsals without the promise of performances!  At this time, we can promise exciting plans for our 2020 Nutcracker, details about which will be released shortly. These plans will take AZYB in a new and exciting direction, while ensuring safety for all.
