A select group of young, talented dancers from THE BALLET LAB are given the opportunity to join our exclusive pre-professional company, the JUNIOR ACES!
As a member of The Junior ACES, you have the opportunity to train and perform alongside our professional company ACE Dance Theatre. You will train under ACE Dance Theatre's Artistic Directors and Guest Artists, and will study and create new company repertoire. In this small and intimate group, dancers will learn first hand what it takes both physically and mentally to dance in a professional contemporary dance company. The JUNIOR ACES program does not replace the training dancers participate in at their regular studios, and is an additional program to enhance and diversify their training and performance experience.
The JUNIOR ACES perform annually in our winter season performance, as well as at local dance and cultural festivals in Ontario. In addition to these local performances, we are passionate about creating more opportunities for these dancers outside of Toronto.
Most recently, the Junior ACES travelled to EUROPE for our first international tour to Spain. They travelled along the Costa Del Sol in the south of Spain, wowing audiences with their sheer talent and artistic voices.
The JUNIOR ACES are also a key piece in our promotional campaigns. They are involved in company photoshoots, video shoots and act as ambassadors to the company on our social platforms.
The Junior ACES are given the optimal professional dance experience, all while networking with incredible local and international artists and building lasting relationships with like minded, motivated dancers.
To audition for the Junior ACES, dancers must attend our summer intensive, The Ballet Lab. Throughout the weeklong intensive, we will evaluate dancers on their technique, performance quality, work ethic, attitude, and maturity. Invites to join the company will be emailed out at the end of the summer.
