Dear Parents and Students,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our families to another season of dance! We are very excited to meet the students and inspire everyone to meet new goals. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, teachers will be assessing their classes to ensure that all students are placed in the appropriate level.
The summer at that RWBS was very busy and full of excitement with Adult Summer Dance and Dance Intensive bringing in many new faces into the building. Congratulations to all students who participated in summer dance programs across the country and abroad.
I am hopeful that everyone had a restful summer and managed to take advantage of the beautiful weather that we experienced.
Here’s to another great year!

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet School’s Musical Theatre Dance Ensemble is a performance group which represents the school at the Manitoba Dance Festival and other events that may arise throughout the year. Students are selected based on their talent, ability, commitment and attendance. Chosen students are invited into the Dance Ensemble on their placement forms at the end of the year; however if your child was not invited directly into the program we encourage them to attend the auditions as outlined below. Teachers may request that students return the week following the audition in order to make a final decision. Following the audition process, an email will be sent out informing the parent of the results of the audition.
In order to participate in the Dance Ensembles, students must also be registered for the following classes in addition to the respective Dance Ensemble class:
Junior Musical Theatre: minimum of 1 musical theatre class, 1 jazz class OR ballet class OR tap class
