To join Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet (CVYB), dancers participate in an open audition. Judges rank dancers based on their age and ability. The top ranked are then invited to become apprentices. The level of commitment from dancers and their parents is substantial. Each must agree to participate in CVYB for a full calendar year. Each dancer is required to take a minimum of four to six 90 minute classes weekly, and summer study is required for a minimum of 5 weeks.
In addition to the story book ballets, which are presented each March at the Akron Civic Theatre, company members participate in CVYB on Tour, taking ballet into community venues and schools. Dancers may miss up to 10 days of their own school to perform for other children.
