  • The premiere training ground of northeast Ohio, Canton Ballet celebrates its golden anniversary —50 years of dance for Canton and the Stark community! We look forward to a year of celebration. Let the festivities begin!!

    Following a summer program of various classes, dance camps and workshops including guest international master teacher Laura Alonzo, our milestone year will progress to the opening of fall classes in September and expanded use of our new 4th studio for added levels in jazz and modern dance followed by spring semester in January.

    Director’s Choice, an exciting program of classical and contemporary ballet and modern dance with creative and challenging new works by faculty and guest choreographers. Our treasured annual holiday tradition of The Nutcracker will highlight our celebration with two guest artists from the globally acclaimed New York City Ballet. In the spring we will present the full length classical ballet Cinderella, one of our most popular works for the entire family.

    The Nutcracker Ball fundraiser will have a new look in November with a fabulous 50th Anniversary Gala of cocktails, dinner, dancing and auctions as we honor those from the past who helped make all of this possible–alumni dancers, board members, staff and volunteers. The gala spotlight will be on artistic and executive director Cassandra Crowley and manager Deby Barath, both celebrating 35 years with the ballet.

    School of Canton Ballet will continue classes for over 300 students of all ages, toddler to adult. Strong emphasis placed on staff development and excellence in classroom instruction assures the highest caliber of training for those who want to dance. All ballet classes have live piano accompaniment.
