Organization Overview

Westchester Ballet Company is a not-for-profit dance repertory company dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of dance throughout the communities of Westchester County. Maintaining and expanding its repertoire of top-flight classical and contemporary ballets, it serves to educate and train local dancers, often combining their talents with those of renowned professional guest artists for performances. It also provides financial support for local youngsters who would not otherwise be able to afford dance instruction, and offers educational outreach programs for local schools and community centers. Student dancers perform with the company from the age of 7, and progress by open audition to junior and senior company levels. Adults with dance training may audition for character roles and internationally renowned professional dancers perform lead roles. The Westchester Ballet Company's major production, The Nutcracker, features a cast of more then 125 dancers and guest artists, with exquisite choreography, and lavish costumes, scenery and special effects, and is presented to the citizens of Westchester County each December. The Company also takes great pride in presenting a spring repertoire performance, An Evening of Dance, a program of classical and original works which illustrate the successful transformation of a group of young students with raw talent and desire into a group of young dancers with experience and discipline.
