Connecticut Concert Ballet Inc. was founded in 1973 as a training school for classical ballet and has been providing quality dance training ever since. In January of 1985 CCB was incorporated as a non-profit organization and is currently the only non-profit dance school and dance performing organization in Manchester
As a non-profit organization Connecticut Concert Ballet strives to keep tuition as low as possible. A large number of scholarships are provided to students who otherwise would not be able to afford classes. To offset operation expenses, CCB relies on a large network of volunteers, from parents of our students to members of the community. Volunteers help sew costumes, organize fundraisers, help with building improvements and assist in all aspects of CCB’s large-scale performances. Connecticut Concert Ballet also seeks grants and donations to help fund projects and performances.
Connecticut Concert Ballet has been under the direction of Wendy Fish-Lawrence and David Lawrence since 1997. Drawing upon their varied professional experience, Wendy and David bring dynamic leadership, enthusiasm and a nurturing teaching style to the school. As the schools Artistic Directors, Wendy and David are very committed to CCB’s professional approach to training.
