In addition to our own PVB dancers and members of the local community, this year’s performance will feature guest artists from Carolina Ballet for the first time since 2019. Join us as we celebrate 50 years of Pioneer Valley Ballet! The Friday, December 9th show at 4pm will be a Sensory Safe performance!

Also join us for a photo slide show of PVB’s history and a pre-talk about PVB’s past, present and future by Co-Artistic Director Thomas Vacanti. Supporters of PVB and the arts won’t want to miss this special opportunity to be a part of the celebration.
