Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to getting back in the studio this week! Exciting things will be happening this semester, and our season culminates with our 2020 performances of…

A Princess’s Wish!

The spring performance includes parts written and choreographed for your dancer. Learning dances is a team effort; each students’ participation and attendance is vital to the success of each class’s dance. Please notify the studio at emily@thechildrensballet.com if a student must miss classes after February 1st.

Rehearsals and performances will be held at Danville Community High School. Students must be available for all rehearsals the week before the performance (May 26-28). General schedule is Tuesday through Thursday 5:00-8:00 pm (rehearsals), Saturday 5:00-9:00 pm (performance), and Sunday 1:00-5:00 pm (performance).

Tickets will be available for pre-sale starting May 1. More information to come (they go fast; get them early!). Performance Guides will go home soon. Check out the Performance FAQs in the meantime, or let us know if you have any questions!

Building Our Future

We have exciting news! A very generous patron has come forward to match what we need to raise in order to begin our new construction. This is where you come in…

We’ve been working hard to raise money for an additional studio and improvements to our existing building, but haven’t reached our goal yet. Can you help us reach it?

Our goal is $7,000 (which will be matched), and we cannot reach it without your help. We are asking you to consider a gift of $25 to the building fund by the end of January. If each of our ballet families contributed $25 we would be over halfway to our goal! 

For more information about the project, and to make a donation, please visit our website.
