Brandywine Ballet Company

The Brandywine Ballet Company is a separate, non-profit regional ballet company in which The Dance Center is the Official School. Students 11 years old or older have first preference for acceptance into the company, however it is not guaranteed. If accepted into the company these students will be guaranteed at least 2 performances per year as well as acceptance into master classes. The commitment of the ballet company is far greater than that of the Elite program. Complete details and a sample contract are available at The Brandywine Ballet office (6l0) 692-6402.

The Brandywine Ballet Theatre is the professional arm of The Brandywine Ballet organization. Students who qualify technically, are at least entering their 9th grade year of school and are at least 13 years of age are eligible to audition. These students are a select group of dedicated dancers who will train daily and work toward a professional career in ballet. These students will be guaranteed at least 3 performances per year. Complete details and a sample contract are available at The Brandywine Ballet office (610) 692-6402.
