“First a school” It just makes sense

Hi Everyone
As my old boss, George Balanchine was quoted to have said, “First a school” To that end we have created the Philadelphia Ballet School. At the moment it makes us the only Professional Ballet Company in Philadelphia with it’s own school. A school will give us the foundation that we need for artistic expansion, financial security and a pool of potential dancers for the future.

    Looks great! I am looking forward to being back on the East Coast so I can catch some of the shows. Too bad we won’t be close enough for my kiddos to attend the school!
