Current Season at PVB
2020 - 2021
The spirit of each Pioneer Valley Ballet season is to maintain our rich tradition, while expanding our repertoire and reaching into our community.
We always begin our season in earnest with our winter show, The Nutcracker (postponed in 2020). This treasured community event includes over 250 dancers from towns throughout Western Massachusetts, performing parts that range from enchanting snowflakes to the tiniest reindeer. Here’s how you can get involved.
In the Spring, we present an original, full-length ballet, choreographed by artist directors Maryanne Kodzis and Thomas Vacanti. In 2021, we’ll present an outdoor, site-specific, roaming performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton, MA. Previous performances have included Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty.
The season typically wraps up with “A Celebration of Dance,” showcasing the progress our students have made over the year. (There will not be a Celebration of Dance performance in 2021.)
We hope you’ll join us this season, as our dancers unfold the magic of these incredible performances.
