History of Ballet Légere

Ballet Légere was founded in 1984 by Donna Vittorio to give aspiring dancers the opportunity to perform in a professional production.  Ms. Vittorio endeavored to make the the arts accessible to children and audiences that may not otherwise have the opportunity to see a full scale Ballet.  Since it's inception, Ballet Légere has performed it's annual production of "The Nutcracker" for over 100,000 school children.  Added to that are the 65,000+ patrons that have attended weekend performances over the company's 33 year history.  Boasting a cast of 120 dancers annually, Ballet Légere has an alumni base of over 4,000 dancers, actors, and performers of all ages.
