The Danza Classica Ballet Company, the Walla Walla Valley’s only classically trained youth ballet company, will perform pieces ranging in style from classical ballet to lyrical ballet to modern. Repertoire is always new, fresh, and exciting under the direction of Artistic Director Idalee Hutson-Fish. The auditioned company members range in age from 10-18 and rehearse on the weekends in addition to attending regular ballet classes during the week. Proceeds benefit the Danza Classica Ballet Foundation and their mission to foster and advance the art of ballet in the Walla Walla Valley.
Through generous patron support at their annual Tutus and Tapas gala, plus grants from local organizations, the Danza Classica Ballet Foundation has been able to offer over 18 need-based scholarships to local youth supporting their dreams to dance, purchase a portable marley floor so the Company dancers can have a safe surface on which to dance, bring in professionals in the field of dance on 6 occasions to teach Master Classes and choreograph pieces for the Company, underwrite ballet productions, and provide free children’s tickets to performances, as well as providing financial support for Company registration fees at Europe Dance Grand Prix in 2016 and 2018.
Please join the Company at Tutus and Tapas for a celebration of ballet!
