Roanoke Ballet Theatre's company dancers are showcased in The Black Box Series. These performances offer professional dance at a low $8.00 cost per person. In its second year, we average about eighty people per show; each show features classical ballet and originally choreographed contemporary pieces. Our audiences are diverse, consisting not only of regular 'friend of the ballet,' but also, because of the low price and easy accessibility, a draw of individuals from across the Roanoke Valley.
The low admissions price covers costumes for the dancers and miscellaneous items needed for the show. Dancer rehearsal time is paid for by Roanoke Ballet Theatre, but any contributions would help us make the Black Boxes self-suffiecient..
Our goal is to earn $10,000 in donations. For four shows each season that would mean all dancers could be paid for rehearsal time out of company fudning..
The Black Box is a great addition to the Roanoke Valley Arts & Culture scene. Please help us keep it alive!
Now enjoy Roanoke Ballet Theatre's performance of Choice, Choreographed by William Smith for a Black Box performance.
