Performing at PBS

One of the most exciting traditions at PBS is the rehearsal and presentation each year of The Nutcracker.  This year we are planning a somewhat shortened version to limit rehearsals and dancer interaction and additional performances to limit audience size.  We hope to perform as usual November 21-22 at Franklin High School.  If that theatre is not open by then, we will perform at PBS and include live streaming.  Rehearsals will begin September 19.
Our Spring Performance will be the funny and charming Coppelia, with performance at PBS, June 5-6. With luck, by then we can return to normal seating.


As always, participation in these performances is open to all levels from Beginning Ballet through Adult.  Rehearsals will be on weekends following classes for all levels and on some weeknights for the upper levels.  There is no ‘Costume’ or ‘Rehearsal’ fee to participate, just your commitment to attend all of your rehearsals.

Gem City Ballet (GCB) is a non-profit pre-professional ballet company directed by Barbara Pontecorvo.  The company is separate from PBS but is in residence at Pontecorvo Ballet Studios.  GCB is open to qualified area dancers age 12 and older from all area ballet schools.  There are rehearsals five days a week, three repertory seasons a year, plus many other smaller performances each year.  If you are interested in learning more about GCB and how you can be involved, either as a dancer, Friend of GCB or board member, please speak to Barbara or call 937-550-9245.  GCB dancers are not required to attend PBS; the company is open by audition to all qualified area dancers.
