The Ballet Rincon Ensemble Program

History

Originally founded as the Ballet Rincon Performance Ensemble in 2010, the Ballet Rincon Ensemble Program offers two tracks of rigorous, supplemental programming that gives serious students further advanced training in concert dance forms (Classical Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary) through extended and focused training hours in both technique and repertoire. Members of the Ensemble serve as ambassadors for Ballet Rincon and as advocates for dance and the arts in the greater city of Tucson. They have been invited to perform in multiple events in Tucson, including the Tucson Museum of Art’s Annual Crush Gala Fundraiser, the Confucius Institute at The University of Arizona’s Chinese New Year Celebration, Vail Pride, the Tucson Festival of Books, Art in the Park, and the Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase Invitational Concert.

Membership is offered to all dancers leveled in Ballet Level 8 or higher, and allows serious dancers the ability to participate in Ballet Rincon performances at a more advanced level, explore the breadth and diversity that exists in the dance world.
