We are thrilled to bring professional ballet back to Lynchburg in the historic theater at the Academy Center of the Arts! The Ballet is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the health and wellness of dancers. We firmly believe that excellence in ballet can be achieved by those of all shapes, shades, and sizes.

Since the inception of Charlottesville Ballet twelve years ago, Lynchburg has been woven into the creation and presentation of new works. We have collaborated with regional artists and students from Dance Theatre of Lynchburg since 2009 and have presented The Nutcracker for 5,000+ patrons, first at E. C. Glass High School and now as Resident Dance Company at the Academy.

We partner with the Central Virginia Ballet school in Lynchburg to provide dance education and performance opportunities to young children ages 5 to 18, and as we move forward in Lynchburg, we plan to bring even more educational outreach to your community.
