For 22 years the Chambersburg Ballet, resident dance company of Chambersburg's Historic Capitol Theatre, has brought the beauty and athleticism of classical ballet and contemporary dance to diverse audiences all across Franklin County. From Spring Run to Quincy, from The Luhrs Center For The Performing Arts to the Capitol Theatre and points in between, the company's performances have enthralled children and adults of all ages. Even during the height of Covid, our dancers, artistic staff and backstage personnel persevered to bring performances "virtually", and did not miss staging a single production. In doing so the Chambersburg Ballet has provided valuable training in dance-related disciplines, plus performance and choreographic opportunities, to hundreds of young local dancers.
The Chambersburg Ballet's Board of Directors (the Chambersburg Ballet Guild) is asking for your support for the 2021-2022 performance season. We strive to keep the Chambersburg Ballet affordable and accessible to both dancers and audience members alike. Ticket sales and Tuition cover approximately half of the expenses and your support is needed in order to keep our prices affordable and the arts available to as many as possible.
