A team for Continental Ballet Company
"Pointe Posse" a team to help the Continental Ballet Company support it's upcoming performances.
We support local professional ballet dancers!
Continental Ballet Company has both a professional performing company and a school of classical ballet. The Company was founded in 1988 by Riet Velthuisen, a native of Holland who has danced professionally with several European companies including the Dutch National Ballet. The Company performs at the Schneider Theater in the Bloomington Center for the Arts, as well as on tour throughout the state. Daily studio classes are offered through Continental Ballet Company at the Center for the Arts. The Company brings classical ballet to the community through educational programs, studio classes and professional performances.
The company has contracted with thirteen professional dancers this season. In addition we have three apprentices and junior apprentice dancers performing with the company.
Our 2015-2016 season begins with outreach performances showcasing excerpts from classical ballets. These performances will be at Nativity of Mary School, Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church and Creekside Community Center.
The season will then jump right into our annual Nutcracker Ballet with performances in Bloomington, Menominee, Glenwood and Red Wing
In March the Company will perform the ballet Giselleat the Bloomington Center for the Arts. This is one of the most beloved of classical ballets and CBC presents it as a full length ballet.
Your support will assist us with production costs so that we can keep our ticket prices affordable. We will also designate a portion of donations to our new scholarship fund for young students. Any size donation can make a difference when joined with others - please support the arts and Continental Ballet Company. Thank you!
