Dancers of AYB

American Youth Ballet's dancers are comprised of 9-18 year old, Kansas City area students. Dancers are all professionally trained and aspire to reach the highest level of technique and performance quality.

Auditions for the company are held annually in May. American Youth Ballet artistic staff seeks out youth who have a good understanding of all dance idioms with a focus on classical ballet training. For more information on auditions, please call:



Special open auditions take place during the year for dancers of all ages from the community. These guest performers augment the bigger productions of AYB.


Company members train in a specially designed curriculum of ballet, pointe, pas de deux, and modern at the American Dance Center, the official training school of AYB.
