Creativity and Community Through Dance

What's New

"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way."
Wayne Dyer

SAVE THE DATES:  August Ballet Intenstives with Jennifer Wiley, Robert Royce, Jesse Tidquist, and Christine Harris will happen August 7-11, 2017!

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Next year'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.

In June, students from our Youth Company, Ballet 2, and Kids' Tap & Jazz classes performed for the seniors at Craftsbury Community Care Center; and, members of our Youth Company performed at Morrisville's Firefly Festival. In July, we won the award for Best Performance at Morrisville's Fourth of July Parade and opened Farm to Ballet's performance at Heartwood Farm in South Albany, VT.

August 7-11, we will hold our annual Ballet Intensive, offering local students the opportunity to learn from world class dance instructors: Jennifer Wiley, Robert Royce, Jesse Tidquist, and Christine Harris.  In the evening, local dance teachers will be coached in order to broaden their knowledge of dance and dance instruction.  We happily welcome all of our guest teachers!

We will kick off the Fall with our Open House on Thursday, August 31, 2107 at the Wolcott Town Hall.  From 5-7 PM, everybody can come to enjoy refreshments, register for classes, meet faculty, and ask questions about our programs.  Afterwards, at 7:30 PM, there will be a Parent Meeting to hear from families and answer specific questions about what to expect at dance classes, progression throught the program, performances, and more.  

This year, students will have the oppportunity to perform in the Nutcracker which will be performed in December, community performances that we attend throughout the year, our Choreography Showcase happening in the early spring, and our Spring Performance on June 9 and 10, 2018.
