Applicants will train with a diverse faculty from NYCB, ABT, The Kirov, The Royal Ballet, and more, with multiple performance opportunities throughout the year, including the works of Petipa, Bournonville, Balanchine, new works, and The Knickerbocker Suite. The Manhattan Youth Ballet is under the direction of Executive Artistic Director Rose Caiola and Artistic Advisor Daniel Ulbricht.
Modeled with an emphasis on European classical ballet, Manhattan Youth Ballet (MYB) offers world-class training in a nurturing environment focused on discipline, precision and artistry. MYB is the culmination of Ms. Rose Caiola's effort for the past fifteen years to create a viable and curriculum-based ballet academy in Manhattan in order to serve the needs of the multifaceted community. Principal members of the faculty have received their training in schools such as the School of American Ballet, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and the Kirov Ballet. The faculty strives to bring out the individual potential of each student with an emphasis on artistry as well as technique to create truly versatile dancers for the current dance world. Education is a top priority at Manhattan Youth Ballet and the school has numerous community outreach programs to promote dance education. Since moving to its new home at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center in September 2008, over 2,500 New York City school children have participated in lecture demonstrations and/or been MYB's invited guests at full-length performances.
