Tighten up those toe shoes; it's audition time. The SLO Movement Arts Center recently launched a nonprofit group, the Movement Arts Collective, which is forming a youth ballet company for dancers ages 12 and up.
Auditions will be held Aug. 19 at noon at the SLO Movement Arts Center. Dancers should have at least two years of ballet training at an intermediate to advanced level. Members of the company will train 10 months out of the year and participate in multiple performances.
As part of its educational programming, the studio will also host choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa the weekend of Sept. 2 and 3 to work on a new piece for the collective. Ochoa recently choreographed pieces for the New York City and San Francisco ballets. For more information, visit movementartscollective.org. Δ
