CHAMBERSBURG BALLETThe Chambersburg Ballet is a regional dance company founded by Artistic Director Lavinia Reid 22 years ago. The dance company holds auditions annually in September, at its affiliated school, the Chambersburg Ballet Theatre (CBT) School, for dancers interested in performing in the Company *for a term lasting the entire CBT School Year, concluding with the End-of-School-Year Performances in June. (*Please do not audition if you think you may not fulfill your School Year commitment.)

- (Soloist & Principal Dancers: Highly trained CBT School Instructors, scheduled as available. These dancers are evaluated outside of Company auditions, during classes which they attend.)
Company Rehearsal Nights at CBT: Senior & 1st-year Senior Dancers are given priority whenever possible in the casting of company roles, at the discretion of the Artistic Director, and since they often have solo roles, may have a rehearsal on any weeknight, as well as on Saturday. Most rehearsals for Trainees and Junior Dancers are held on either a Tuesday or Thursday evening, (technique class days), plus Friday evening, & Saturdays. Auxiliary dancers are strong, usually older dancers, capable of dancing solo roles. NOTE: Although Company Rehearsals are mandatory for all other categories, Soloist, Principal, and Auxiliary Dancers arrange their rehearsal schedules personally with the Artistic Director, and sometimes may not be at all rehearsals that all other categories must attend.
