The Loudoun Ballet Performing Arts Company is the area's largest and most active pre-professional ballet company. We exist to provide performance opportunity to our talented and dedicated ballet dancers. We want to entertain you by taking you on magical journeys. While only 8-19 years of age, our dancers will connect with your heart and imagination leaving you spellbound. Serious balletomanes have exclaimed, "This performance is not amateur! It rivals many major productions."
Our 2018/19 Ballet Season is packed with exciting performances and special events. In October, we present "Peter and the Wolf", a brilliant new production created, choreographed, and staged by our Artistic Directors. Set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, this ballet tells the story of the young boy, Peter, and his pets; his wise grandfather, and a greedy wolf. In December, "The Nutcracker" will bring fresh sets and beautiful costumes to make your holiday tradition memorable. In May 2019, "Cinderella" will come to life where love and charity prevail.
Whether you are a veteran of the ballet or just peeking in on this art form, let us entertain you through our excellence of dance and storytelling.
We want to thank our Sponsors, Patrons, and Advertisers who generously support our mission to bring the joy and artistry of dance to Loudoun County.
