Redding Ballet Academie – Established Quality since 1993

Redding Ballet Academie
The logo for the school states "Established Quality since 1993."  What has happened here since 1993 that allows Redding Ballet Academie to state it provides the highest caliber ballet training?  I decided to make a list.
Since its establishment in 1993 several students from RBA have been accepted by some of the nation's leading professional training centers, namely Alonzo Kings' Lines Ballet Preprofessional program, Lines Ballet Apprenticeship Program, The Julliana School, The Joffrey Ballet Summer Session, NYC Ballet at Sarasota, Sacramento Ballet Summer session and State Street Ballet Summer Program.

Other alumni of the school have auditioned and been accepted into dance programs at the University of California Santa Barbara, San Jose State University, University of California Berkeley,  Idllywild Art Academy, Oregon State University, Sacramento Ballet and Up with People.  Not bad, even if I do secretly wish they would stick around!

For those in the company Redding City Ballet had a great year.  Joining the  Art Hop scene this year allowed us to present a large amount of  repertory that many people have never seen.  It also gave some choreographers the opportunity to show work that was taking a back seat to things because of a lack of  performance space in the area.  The past nine months has definitely been a juggling act for studio space.  All I can say is, " here we go again."    Make sure you stop by on those "second" Saturdays.
For me personally the best of 2009 is coming up; a collaboration with Shasta Symphony on a performance of  Mendelsohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  I have been thinking about that ballet for a while now.  What a surprise to be approached this summer by Dr. Fiske to perform with them at their concert.  That's this coming Sunday, November 1st at 3:15.  I hope everyone can make it.  After that, it is on to Nutcracker. Which reminds me, we will be selling $1.00 raffle tickets at the November 14th Art Hop for gift baskets and tickets to the Cascade performance dates of Nutcracker.  Stop by and pick some up.  You will be helping put pointe shoes on some ballerina's feet!
