Gem City Ballet was formed for 3 main purposes:
(1) to educate young dancers in the joys and rigors of ballet performance;
(2) to make quality ballet performances available to a wider audience;
(3) to provide new and experienced choreographers an opportunity to create new works.
GEM CITY BALLET
Gem City Ballet (GCB) was formed by Barbara Pontecorvo on January 8, 1992 initially to provide a performance outlet for the advanced students of Pontecorvo Ballet Studios. Originally known as Ballet de Jeunesse, there were eight women and one man present at the first rehearsal. Dancers are admitted by audition only, and auditions are open to all serious dance students in the Miami Valley area. GCB has produced twentey professional dancers in its short history. GCB performed its first Balanchine ballet, Concerto Barocco, in 2003, at the Victoria Theatre in Dayton.
