Welcome to Connecticut Concert Ballet!
We would like to welcome you to a very special place to dance - Connecticut Concert Ballet. 2022/2023 marks CCB's 50th year of bringing the joy and wonder of dance to students of all ages.
At CCB we teach our students to aspire to greatness in all they do, both in and out of the studio. We are teaching them more than just how to dance...we are shaping the lives of our dancers and guiding them to become confident, creative, artistic, healthy humans. We work closely with parents to ensure each student is properly trained, supported and nurtured. We stress the importance of teamwork and strive to foster friendships and a mutually supportive, encouraging environment among students across all age levels. At CCB you will meet and make great friends while learning one of the most beautiful and challenging art forms. At CCB we will help you become the best dancer and person you can be!

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.
