Major productions are full-length ballets with professional choreography, scenery, costumes, and guest soloists, presented at the Stanley Center for the Arts in Utica. They provide young dancers with the training and development opportunities essential to progress to professional ballet. Following the Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.) method, they work with dancers ranging in age from preschool to young adult. They progress through levels of difficulty and achievement, testing before outside judges as prescribed by ARAD. The most accomplished dancers are offered contracts with the Company and Senior Company. More than 40 Mohawk Valley Ballet Company Dancers have gone on to professional careers in dance. They have become dancers, choreographers, designers, and teachers with such notable organizations as the New York City Ballet, Tulsa Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Boston Ballet, Cleveland Ballet, and Bolshoi Ballet.
