Message from Sandy Emile, Artistic Director

I am delighted to be working with new and returning dancers this year at Cache Valley Civic Ballet. It is always a pleasure to see our dancers grow and improve. We are looking forward to two great performances for local audiences to enjoy again this year - the Christmas tradition, The Nutcracker, and in the spring, the beloved fairy tale, Cinderella. These performances are not only for the enjoyment of the audience, but build our dancers' skills and confidence on stage as well.

With their growth in mind, we are also introducing tap and jazz classes, which we are adding to the ballet and modern we already offer. [Register for those, and other classes, by clicking here.] With so many of our dancers choosing to pursue dance education in college, it seemed like the right time to broaden their exposure and their understanding of different forms of dance. Just as in music, a study of the piano often leads to easier transitions to other instruments, ballet will continue to be our primary focus, realizing that strong ballet technique makes all other forms easier and more beautiful!

We look forward to seeing you in the studios, at the theater, and around the beautiful community we all call home! Have a wonderful year!
