I had the oppourtunity to attend 2 performances last season: Dracula and The Nutcracker. Ordering the tickets online was a breeze. Dracula was amazing. The dancers were flawless. Both performances exceeded my expectations. I wanted to expose my young 4 yr.old niece and 8 and 9 yr.old nephews to the ballet and had a wonderful experience when we saw The Nutcracker. The performance captivated the attention of the adults as well as the children the entire time. They loved it and want to go back for more! Keep up the good work!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The performances are just as professional as any you would attend in Center City Philadelphia or New York City without the travel and expense. Wonderful!

My daughter just recently transfered to Brandywine Ballet Co. to be trained by the talented staff they have there. Their dancer's are well trained and absolutly beautiful artists! Based on performances we had seen, we now travel an hour each way daily for her to train there. So far the experience has been wonderful, my daughter is in the company and has improved her dance technique by leaps and bounds already in the few short months she has been training with the gifted teachers at the Dance Center. I would (and do) highly recommend Brandywine Ballet to anyone with an interest in studying ballet seriously or for anyone looking to enjoy great local ballet entertainment as I believe this company offers the very best in ballet production in the entire chester co. area. Donna Muzio and her staff are not only talented but also very proffesional in everything they do.
