The River Region Ballet, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Under the artistic direction of Susan Ferrara, it has performed a full length Nutcracker in the river region since 1995, and in 1998 a Spring Concert was added to the ballet company’s season. The Spring Concert opens the doors to many more ballets for our dancers and audience to explore and experience. RRB’s dedication to the community can be seen in several outreach programs such performances and events for school children, nursing homes and public libraries. Our dancers are chosen through open auditions. Their performance opportunity allows them to meet, dance with and observe professional guest artists contracted for each production. The inspiration given by these professionals is priceless to aspiring dancers. Company and Junior Company members are also offered educational opportunities in the form of workshops, guest choreographers, master classes, and field trips.
