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

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.

August 7-11, we held our annual Ballet Intensive, offering local students the opportunity to learn from world class dance instructors: Jennifer Wiley, Caroline Wiley, Robert Royce, Jesse Tidquist, and Christine Harris.  Cuminating in a showing at the end of the week, students from Ballet Wolcott and Moving Light Dance spent this rigrous week immersed in ballet, Graham technique, and contemporary.  We congratulate all of the students who attended this event!

This fall, we will offer our community ongoing classes such as ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and tap with our amazing year round staff as well as workshops and master classes such as West African Dance with Jordan Mensah and Belly Dance with Rebecca Ventrice.  Our Youth Company will continue to meet on Fridays and prepare dances to be performed at Rocktoberfest, the Vermont State Dance Festival (students in Ballet 4 and 5 who are in middle or high school), the Festival of Lights, and The Nutcracker.

This year, all students of Ballet Wolcott will have the oppportunity to perform in the Nutcracker which will be performed Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 2:30 PM at the Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro, VT.  Fill out a performance form at the Open House or on your first day of classes.  Students may also be a part of our Choreography Showcase happening in the early spring, and our Spring Performance on June 9 and 10, 2018 at Dibden Center for the Arts, Johnson State College.   
Please, visit our Classes page for the latest updates on these performances, our fall classes, and workshops, intensives, and master classes.
