HYB Leveling

HYB mini

HYB mini students are generally 3-5 years of age and are not required to have any years of ballet training. These students typically have one smaller roll in each HBT show.

HYB Levels I-V

Leveling for HYB students ages 6-18 is determined by HBT directors based on age, skill and physical and emotional development. (Dancers 6+ without any formal dancer training are still able to enroll and perform in HYB productions). Students enrolled in City Center Dance's Pre-Professional Program will have the same HYB level as Pre-Pro level. The differences in leveling is reflected in HYB casting. Dancers placed in higher levels will be cast in larger, more difficult roles, with levels IV and V performing en pointe. 

*Hudson Youth Ballet leveling is at the discretion of the HYB faculty. If you have a question regarding your student's level or tuition rates (below), please reach out.
