The Cache Valley Civic Ballet was formed in 1982 to promote the study of ballet as a fine art, to offer qualified training in ballet and advancement of professional ability, to provide a medium for the development of danceres, choreographers, designers, and musicians, and to provide education in the art of ballet.
The company has a repertoire of many full length ballets which are performed in Logan, Utah's beautiful Ellen Eccles Theatre. The company consists of about fifty auditioned dancers from the region. Additional parts in The Nutcracker and other ballets are filled through public auditions.
The Company consists of about forty dancers from the Northern Utah region. Company members must audition annually. The Junior Company consists of dancers from age 11 to 15, with apprenticeships available. The Senior Company has dancers ages 15 and above who have achieved greater performing ability.
The Junior Company is a great opportunity for younger dancers to gain experience in performing and to increase in strength and skill. The Junior Company corp performs in The Nutcracker as soldiers, in Waltz of the Flowers, and in other variations.
Dancers in the Senior Company perform leads in the ballets and also in the Corp de Ballet. The Nutcracker's snow scene, and most of the Act II variations are performed by Senior members.
Additional parts in The Nutcracker and other ballets are filled through public auditions. Many people in the community have filled roles as children, adults, or character parts.
