Creativity and Community Through Dance

What's New

Ballet Wolcott's next board meeting is at Monday, March 19, 2018 at 6:00 PM at the Wolcott Town Offices. Click here for the agenda.

Congratulations to the Ballet Wolcott Youth Company on their wonderful performance at Ice on Fire at North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier!!  Our dancers proved that they can perform even in snow!  Many thanks to the dancers and their families, the folks at Ice on Fire, and Jennifer Copp for facebook photos and hair decorations.

This spring's ballet will be Coppelia, a comic ballet about Dr. Coppelius, who creates  life-sized doll; Franz, a young man who falls in love with her; and Swanilda, the young man's true love who helps him to see the truth and saves him from the doctor.  We welcome Robert Royce and Jesse Tidquist 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 being finalized and will soon be available.

This winter, 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.  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
