Youth Ballet West in Galway

Welcome to Youth Ballet West


Youth Ballet West was established eight years ago to allow young gifted dancers  from across the West of Ireland to develop their talent locally while remaining at their studies.

The company is funded by the Arts Council and Galway City & County councils, so fees are kept to a minimum for these talented dancers aged between 13 and 23 who are selected during an audition process.

“By forming the company we were able to increase performance opportunities and bring ballet really into the public eye in Galway,” says Director Phyllis Hayes who along with her sister Judith Sibley , the Artistic Director , founded the company in 2007.
