An Evening at the Barre

Save the date! October 2014


An Evening at the Barre is Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s premiere fundraising event of the year. Essential annual support raised during this gala ensures the educational development of our young dancers through scholarships, world-class training and performances.

In 2013 we celebrate the 5th anniversary of An Evening at the Barre. The gala is open to the public and will be held on the beautiful campus of Dickinson College.

This formal gala will begin at the Anita Tuvin Schlechter Auditorium with a cocktail reception, silent auction and exclusive performance by CPYB students. The evening will continue in the Social Hall of the Holland Union Building with a three-course dinner and live auction. You can support this event through sponsorship, auction donation, and purchasing tickets to the event. Click HERE for an AUCTION PREVIEW!

Embracing an attitude of lifelong learning, founding artistic director Marcia Dale Weary envisioned a school where children would have the opportunity to receive exceptional ballet training. More than 58 years later, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet is a celebrated leader in the world of classical ballet, an artistic cornerstone of the capital region and an economic cultural powerhouse – infusing nearly $6 million per year into the regional economy. Our unique educational programs provide comprehensive ballet training in an environment that promotes the acquisition of the life skills crucial to a child’s development. Self-confidence, self-discipline, focus, time management, and the ability to set goals, collaborate, and think outside the box are all qualities instilled through participation in CPYB’s educational programs. Your support is essential to the continuation of these programs.
