The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.” Register at

"Nothing tops Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker."
Baltimore Sun


Originally a movie palace, The Paramount Theater opened in 1931. It once hosted films, war bond drives, fashion shows, cartoons for kids, and musical artists, before closing its doors in 1974. Thanks to the diligence of those in the greater Charlottesville region, the theater was saved from threats of demolition, instead undergoing renovations before reopening in 2004.

It now presents a variety of arts, education, and entertainment events, such as London's National Theatre, The Lyric Opera Virginia, comedians, musicians, and more.
