“Fourteen years ago my daughter embarked on a journey with classical ballet and PNB that has forever changed and enriched her life.”
“Just being in the wings, watching the Company dance has inspired me to be a dancer. Being onstage and dancing with a real live orchestra playing and an audience watching gives me the drive and strength to work hard all year.”
“The School is where dreams are started. The Company is where you can fulfill them.”
