All that jazz

Alumni


In 1993 a journey began toward a compelling vision of twenty young dancers with a love of dance and a passion for performing being able to explore their dreams and aspirations in their own community. During the past 25 years over 125 dancers have advantaged this opportunity… some have careers in dance as performers, choreographers, and teachers; others remain active in dance through attending classes, encouraging and supporting their children’s dance experience, and working tirelessly in their communities to ensure that dance is always a dynamic component of the cultural cornucopia. We are very proud of our alumni and their timeless gift to the ballet company of living their lives in a manner that models honesty, integrity, always giving your best, and serving others. The Ballet Company continues to uphold the standards of excellence and professionalism reflected in our alumni so as to enable our current dancers the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
