The year marks the 10th Anniversary of Ballet Renversé as a school in Shelburne Falls and its 20th as a dance company, originally founded in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Please join our anniversary celebration “A Festival of Dance, A Celebration of Community,” an event over time, which culminates in our 10th Anniversary Gala Spring Recital on June 3, 2016.

Events leading up to the Gala include:

  • A performance by Ballet Renversé dancers in Piti Theatre’s production of “Olde Coleraine” (local history) at SYRUP Festival on March 20 at Memorial Hall in Shelburne.
  • A workshop for adults in Isadora Duncan dance technique in April.
  • A guest artist residency in May by dancer Kate Pousont Scarborough, bring the experience of a dance class to BSE students.

The theme of the Gala itself is “My Favorite Things,” and features Ballet Renversé dancers in favorite pieces from the past and guest artists soprano Shelley Roberts, the Marlboro Morris Men, and Sarah Jane Duax, dancer, choreographer, and teacher from New Orleans—one of Ballet Renversé’s founding artists.
