Founded in 2003, the Washington Rock Ballet Company (WRB) has offered amateur dancers, ages seven to eighteen, the special opportunity to work and dance alongside professionals in the field. Every holiday season for the last ten years, the Washington Rock Ballet Company has produced a full length, “Nutcracker.” This large scale production bestows the company members with the privilege to perform a full-length ballet in a professional theater while working with professional dancers from American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, and multiple contemporary and modern dance companies from the Metropolitan area.
The process of developing a ballet dancer is progressive and continual. WRB employs 5 levels of study, each requiring that physical and developmental benchmarks are met in order to progress to the next level.
Washington Rock Ballet meets for company class and rehearsals every Saturday from September to June. Level will be determined by the dancer’s age and ability following acceptance into the program.
