BYDE is a company of gifted local dance students who audition, and once accepted, undertake a rigorous training program as well as roles in BYDE productions and community outreach. BYDE presents major classical dance productions that involve children and young adults such as The Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, Graduation Ball, and an annual Nutcracker, with audience attendance which has grown to include approximately 4,000 individuals annually. BYDE also provides reduced price ticketing for seniors and low income youth to our annual production of The Nutcracker. Annually, BYDE awards dance education scholarships in the areas of artistic talent, financial need, and a boys-only scholarship. Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble is partially support by Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. Additional information about BYDE may be found at our website, www.BYDE.org.
