Vision

We aim both to encourage and promote young, talented dancers, and to enrich the cultural life of the capital through an exceptional program of dance.

Our dance group is made up of students between the ages of 11-19. The students are chosen through a process of auditions that are judged by the teachers of the Lefkosia Youth Ballet.  The LYB creates an environment where the children can exercise their creativity and learn the value of camaraderie, but it is also a place where they are able to grow as dancers and improve their technique. Our greatest goal and vision is to raise the standard of dance in Cyprus.

 

The aims of the Lefkosia Youth Ballet are:

 

  • To raise the standard of ballet in Cyprus and contribute to our cultural scene. 

  • To develop a close-knit community in which members help each other with their common goals.

  • The creation and establishment of a dancing company, of young talented classical ballet dancers, who are eager to cooperate and work with ethos, discipline, and respect.

  • To enhance the skills of young dancers and give them the opportunity to perform publicly.

  • To promote and assist young Cypriot dancers who wish to pursue their dance abroad.  Special attention is given to helping dancers participate in international festivals and competitions, as well as helping them locate and apply for scholarships abroad. 

  • To enrich the public’s knowledge and appreciation of dance

  • To broaden the skills and knowledge of LYB teachers through educational and other activities. 

  • To encourage cooperation among cultural bodies and organizations both in Cyprus and abroad, with the aim of promoting the arts. 

  • To familiarize the community with the Youth Ballet and their work.

Performances

 

Lefkosia Youth Ballet, having worked closely all these years with our teacher members, has amassed many high-level performances, showcasing the talent of Nicosia, that can easily compete with all Youth Ballet Companies around
the world. In our performances, which get better and bigger every year, we have had the pleasure to work with
renowned Cypriot and non-Cypriot choreographers such as Lambros Lambrou, Terence Etheridge,and Aidar Akhmetov.
