Performance Opportunities

The Academy's annual production schedule includes a Spring production in June, a summer performance in August and an opportunity to dance with the Inland Pacific Ballet in its production of "The Nuctcracker" in December. Productions are open to all Inland Pacific Ballet Academy students and participation is optional. The Academy and the Company work together in co-operation with one another much the same as most major schools and companies throughout the USA. For those who choose to participate, the opportunity of working side by side with advanced, pre-professional and professional dancers in fully staged professional level productions is an inspiration and an experience they will always treasure.
