What's New

Happy New Year!  Classes Begin on Wednesday, January 3, 2018!  See you soon! 

Attention:  West African Dance begins, again, on Monday, January 22, 2018!  All ages and abilities are welcome!
Jordan Mensah began his training as a child in Ghana, where dancing and drumming were an essential part of community events. All levels are encouraged to participate in this exciting class where you will learn traditional dances from West Africa. Through an energetic union of music and dance, students will gain confidence and strength and improve stamina.  Mondays, 7:00-8:30 PM, Six Week Workshop:  January 22-February 26, 2018, Tuition: $102.00

Next 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.

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
