Dancer Audition

Partnering Workshop & Company Audition
September 5-10
Carmel Valley

After so much isolation and lack of employment across the field, Ballare Carmel is thrilled to offer this week-long workshop/audition that is designed to provide dancers with a TRANSFORMATIONAL in-person experience in a safe and productive COVID-free environment. Throughout the week dancers will work closely with Artistic Director Lillian Barbeito and Ballare Carmel company members on Countertechnique, progressive ballet, partnering, movement generation, repertory, and performance skills. It is an ideal opportunity for dancers to develop/enhance their partnering skills while experiencing this conspicuously new troupe’s working atmosphere, and be considered for the company’s creations and performances scheduled for 2021/2022.


1 ~ One male dancer will start immediately for the creation with Ihsan Rustem and must be available from September 12-18. The new work will be performed on Saturday, September 18th at Hidden Valley.

2 ~ Site specific work in Monterey County in Spring of 2022

3 ~ Creation with European choreographer in June 2022 with performances in July at the Carmel Dance Festival
