Technique & Determination.

Pioneer Valley Ballet's training program uses a unique Listen, Think, & Move philosophy to create determined, strong, and supple dancers who possess poise, confidence, and self-respect.



Under the direction of Maryanne Kodzis and Thomas Vacanti, dancers learn both contemporary and classical choreography throughout the year in classes and on-stage.



PVB Dancers join professionals and community members on-stage every season to perform in opulent classic ballets, including our regionally known production of The Nutcracker.
