Coastal City Ballet, based in Vancouver, Canada, is actively seeking talented ballet dancers with strong classical training for its company at all times. With sponsorship by Anya International Productions and Ballet Productions Canada Society, Coastal City Ballet had a successful first three seasons, commissioning the world-premiere story ballet Hansel and Gretel as well as A Midsummer Night's Dream and Coppelia.
Coastal City Ballet is a pre-professional ballet company located in Vancouver, Canada that offers young dancers performance opportunities while also continuing their professional career preparations. The company strives to provide much needed performance experiences while offering guidance to young dancers exploring career possibilities within the field of dance.
The repertoire of Coastal City Ballet will range from commissioned works in neoclassical and classical ballet, to the development of story ballets. Company members will maintain a daily schedule similar to that of a professional ballet company with daily class, rehearsals and scheduled performances.
Coastal City Ballet is dedicated to providing dance to the Greater Vancouver area and throughout British Columbia, as well as the possibility of both Canadian and international tours.
The fourth season of Coastal City Ballet will prove to be as exciting and successful as the first three. It will continue to commission full-length story ballets and original works from reknowned choreographers.
The artistic staff of Coastal City Ballet is led by Artistic Director Li Yaming, and is comprised of experienced dance professionals who have worked throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Coastal City Ballet is also honored to have Johnny W. Chang of Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, among others, on its Artistic Advisory Committee.
