Cincinnati Ballet

In the 2008-2009 Season, Cincinnati Ballet celebrated its 45th anniversary. The first official auditions were in 1963 at the YMCA, where 41 dancers were chosen from the 200 hopefuls. Debut performances took place at the University of Cincinnati’s Wilson Auditorium in 1964 and 1965. In 1966, the directorship passed on to a young visionary named David McLain, who at the time also headed the Dance Division of CCM. CCM gave the new company great advantages; studio space for classes and rehearsals, access to talented students, and the use of Wilson Auditorium for performances. As the organization matured, McLain’s vision grew more ambitious. The company was re-named “Cincinnati Ballet Company” in 1968 and gained the talented Carmon DeLeone as music director
