New Bedford Ballet has a respected reputation for high level dance training. We offer a complete and structured program of training in ballet for students age three through professional, and adult classes for beginner through advanced students.

New Bedford Ballet Performs An Evening of Dance 

New Bedford Ballet will culminate its summer season with four performances of An Evening of Dance, an innovative blend of classical and contemporary choreography.  This creative exploration of dance styles will be performed on Friday, August 5, at 5:30 and 7:00 pm and Saturday, August 6, at 2:00 and 3:30pm, at the NBB Community Theatre, 2343 Purchase St. New Bedford.   

The Nightingale is a children’s ballet created by New Bedford Ballet’s artistic director Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault, with choreography by Ms. Waskiel-Marchesseault, James Brown and Eugenia Zinovieva.  Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale, this children’s ballet will bring smiles to young and old as the audience is reminded that the ability to share one’s gifts is a freedom that should never be taken away.

Original contemporary choreography by New Bedford Ballet advanced students and classical and contemporary dance pieces choreographed by NBB instructors James Brown and Erin Petitjean Allen will also be included in this artistic collage of dance styles. 

Tickets are $10.00 for Adults and $5.00 for Seniors, Students and Children. All proceeds from this performance will support the New Bedford Ballet, a non-profit organization.  Tickets are limited and sell quickly, so reserve your tickets soon by contacting the New Bedford Ballet at 508-993-1387.
