This spring's ballet is Coppelia, a comic ballet about Dr. Coppelius, who creates  life-sized doll and Swanilda and her friends, who discover the doll and cause some mischief.  We welcome Robert Royce back to Ballet Wolcott to choreograph this fun ballet.  All students will need to fill out a performance form and return it to us so that we know whether your child is performing:  Ballet 4 and 5 Form  Performance Form for all other students  Rehearsal schedules are here:  Ballet 4 & 5, Ballet 2 & 3, Stories in Motion, Pre-Ballet, and Ballet 1.  Kids' Tap & Jazz, Broadway Jazz, and Lyrical schedules are included on the Ballet 4 & 5 and Ballet 2 & 3 schedules.  Tickets for this event will go on sale May 8, 2018!

Our Summer 2018 Camps and Intensives are listed on our classes page. We will have the honor of holding them in the beautiful studio at the Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro, VT.  Summer Camps and Intensives are offered for children 4 and up, as well as a dance teacher workshop! 

This spring, we offer our community ongoing classes such as ballet, jazz, contemporary, and tap with our amazing year round staff as well as workshops and master classes such as West African Dance with Jordan Mensah and T'ai Chi Ch'uan with Alan Erdossy.  Our Youth Company will continue to meet on Fridays and prepare dances to be performed in our Choreography Showcase and Spring Performance as well as summer shows.

This fall, the Ballet Wolcott Youth Company performed Canon Rock at Morrisville's Rocktoberfest.  Our middle and high school aged students performed this piece as well as Nightmare, a duet choreographed by Ida Eames and Camille Yarrow, at the Vermont State Dance Festival, where Ida and Camille won for Best Intention and Originality!  Students and company members also performed the  Nutcracker at River Arts during Morrisville's Festival of Lights and a sold out show  at the new Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro
