St. Bernard After-School Ballet Program Announces Annual Spring Concert

The New Orleans Ballet Association in partnership with the St. Bernard Parish School Board culminates the spring semester of tuition-free dance classes with an open house featuring students of the program on Wednesday, May 16 at 7 p.m. at Chalmette High School Cultural Arts Center. Created in 1995, the after-school ballet program has been supported by its inception by Chalmette Refining.

The free concert will mark the culmination of 14 weeks of tuition-free ballet instruction held weekly at the Chalmette High School Cultural Arts Center. More than 40 students ages 6 to 18 will perform dances learned throughout the semester followed by an award presentation. Also appearing on the program are pre-professional students of NOBA’s Center for Dance.
