Under the direction of Sandra Meythaler, a former principal dancer for the National Ballet of Ecuador and international award winning ballerina, Roanoke Ballet Theatre created the first and only professional company in Southwest Virginia in 2012.  Members of Roanoke City Ballet have undergone many years of extensive training and have danced professionally with other companies at a variety of levels. The original company started with four dancers. The company has grown over the past seven years to a thirteen dancer troupe: eight paid company dancers and five apprentices. The work of all of the dancers has made a major impact on the arts scene in the Roanoke Valley.

Our dancers not only perform in our main stage productions of full length ballets, but they also donate their time to provide dance experiences to the community through Black Box productions, outreach offerings, and school visits. The dancers act as mentors for the Roanoke Ballet Theatre’s School, training and performing alongside our pre-professional dancers. As the premier professional ballet company, their mission is to enrich the soul of the community through the beauty of dance.

The company enjoys collaborating with other arts organizations such as Opera Roanoke, the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra, the Roanoke Children’s Theatre, and has performed at the Taubman Museum to highlight exhibits through dance. There are also partnerships with local Universities to enrich students’ dance educations.

We hope that you support the Roanoke Ballet Theatre’s professional company as they continue to grow and thrive.
