What is School of Classical Ballet Company?
SCB Company is a group of the studio's elite and most committed dancers. Due to their love for ballet, these dancers have big dance goals. Company dancers are trained on a pre-professional track, being given additional experiences and mentorship to ensure dancers thrive in the dance world.
Thank you !
A HUGE thank you to all of

Company members must be available to perform and participate on event dates.
Company members must be at least 13 years of age by January of their first year of participation.
Company members must be enrolled in three weekly ballet classes at SCB.
The weekly ballet classes Company members must be enrolled in are the two for their level and Saturday ballet.
Company members must be enrolled in three rehearsal classes per week.
The weekly rehearsal classes company members must be enrolled in are the Variations class, the Company class, and Saturday Rehearsal class.
Company members must maintain good attendance in all classes and rehearsals, missing as few as possible and only with good reason (eg. physical and mental health, planned family trip, mandatory school event)
Company members and parents must provide contact information and maintain good communication with the Company, particularly about attendance.
Company members and parents must pay monthly tuition covering these classes to the studio (SCB) and remain in good standing with tuition payments.
Company members will work with their instructors, parents, and other trusted adults to do their best to maintain their physical and mental health throughout the season.
Company members must maintain a good attitude any time they are in the studio spaces, and when engaging with their fellow dancers, instructors, choreographers, studio admin, and community.
Company members and parents must abide by the studio policies as outlined in the studio welcome packet.
Company members and parents must be able to accomplish the Company requirements as outlined below.
Company members and parents must maintain all eligibility requirements as stated above.
Students interested in joining the company must audition in the spring. Students unable to audition in person but contact us to schedule an alternative audition date or digital audition.
There is a non-refundable* annual fee of $200 (two-hundred dollars) to be paid to the studio (SCB) upon acceptance of participation in the company. This includes the annual costume fee and covers all participation in performances for the year.
The Company will organize various events throughout the year that would require additional payment for participating dancers. These events are not covered by the annual participation fee, and might include things like professional photo packages, or tickets to a ballet performance.
Company members may miss one technique class during the week if they need the extra time (e.g. lots of school work) but are expected to still attend all rehearsals, including any rehearsal on the same day of the missed class.
The company schedule is designed to allow Company members to participate in MADCo if they desire to be in both student companies, keeping compatible class requirements and avoiding schedule conflicts. Please keep in mind that the Company asks for a lot of time, about 2-4 hours of time additional to a regular advanced ballet class schedule each week, as outlined in the Eligibility and Requirements, so you may need to decide if you want to do one or the other. Company will also not conflict with the Nutcracker at the Alberta Bair Theater.
Company members and parents must notify the Company a minimum of one week in advance of known absences so we can accommodate.
In order to help prevent burn out, we will have some off days with no regularly scheduled rehearsal and/or shorter rehearsal days, and we will notify Company members and parents in advance.
Company members must attend at least one SCB Summer Intensive.
Apprentices are not required to participate in all performances, nor necessarily take the Variations class; the decision about these aspects will be made individually with each dancer.
*Should the dancer be unable to perform for a substantial amount of time and/or must withdraw from the company prior to performing, a $50 costume fee will be refunded to the dancer.
