Warrenton's Civic Ballet

The Warrenton Ballet Company presents their Annual National Dance Week Concert Sunday, April 25, 4:00 p.m., at Liberty High School, Bealeton. Peter and the Wolf Ballet is featured. Guest artists include Asaph Dance Ensemble and tap dancers from Ballet Academy of Warrenton giving an encore performance of their All-Star Tap Team appearance in The National  Cherry Blossom Festival Parade.


Join us Sunday, April 25, for dessert and meet The Warrenton Ballet Company dancers and their "Peter and the Wolf" characters as we celebrate National Dance Week.

"Dessert With the Dancers" begins at 2:30 p.m. before the concert and is a wonderful opportunity for children to meet the dancers and the characters they portray in Peter and the Wolf Ballet while enjoying a delicious array of homemade cookies and pastries along with autograph and photo opportunities.

Tickets are on sale at Ballet Academy of Warrenton Saturday, April 17 and 24 from 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Tickets are also available by emailing linda@warrentonballet.org or calling 540-347-4011.

A GIFT OF DANCE 

The Warrenton Ballet Company, formed in September 2005, is charitable (501(C)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to providing concert performance opportunities on a pre-professional level to aspiring dancers throughout the Fauquier County area. The brainchild of Linda Voelpel, Director of The Ballet Academy of Warrenton, the Company was formed in celebration of her then, five years of instructing local children and adults in classical ballet technique, jazz, tap, modern and hip-hop.
 
Each September, all area dancers were invited to audition for positions in the Senior, Senior Apprentice, and Junior Companies. Those dancers work hard to perform at concerts and community events through out the school year. An exciting 2009 season is in the works as we begin preparations for a National Dance Week concert in late April.

The Board of Directors of The Warrenton Ballet Company is fully invested in promoting an open exchange of artistic expression through performances, outreach programs and collaboration with other artistic mediums. We welcome THE WARRENTON BALLET to our community.


LETTER FROM LINDA


As 2009 draws to a close and our dancers prepare for their Christmas performances, these young artists are already looking ahead to the spring performing season. We soon begin planning our annual National Dance Week Concert in late April. And for the 2010 Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC, we are auditioning to perform at the Tidal Basin Amphitheater. This is an exciting development for us as we continue our magnificent journey of growth and adventure. I come from a long line of adventurous ancestors who are no doubt looking down from Above and smiling. We hope you will come with us and grow with us on our dance journey.

We promise you an enriching adventure and the opportunity to help our area’s young people realize their dreams as we watch the fine arts grow and enhance our community and our lives.

Bye for now,

Linda Voelpel
Executive Director
