The Next Generation Ballet (NGB) staff is diverse with extensive backgrounds at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, National Ballet of Cuba and The School of American Ballet. They are committed to preparing young dancers for employment by building a technical base that is physically sound and a stylistic approach that is refined, yet adaptable to either a Balanchine or Russian based dance company. NGB has coached many young dancers to international ballet competition medals and to professional employment with companies including New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Zurich Ballet and many
