The Laurel Ballet is one of the finest Companies in our community - a real gem with an excellent staff that is committed to QUALITY. Many Laurel Ballet students have advanced on to grand companies and have been presented opportunities that are often viewed as big dreams, impossible to reach. The caring staff not only instructs at a grand level while providing great Ballet productions; but nurture students, giving them a home and a place in the world of theater and dance. Just ask the Director how many Laurel Ballet students made it into highly competitive Summer programs this year all over the country, including the prestigious and ever demanding Joffrey Ballet. This company is the dream and reality of ballet students from all ages, all walks of life and all worlds. Thank you Laurel Ballet for providing such a wonderfully rich gift to our community.

Dance is not one of my areas of expertise. I think I am exposed to the art form enough to know when it is good dance or bad dance, but that is about as far as I go. Laurel Ballet is "good dance," but that's not what I am reviewing. It's true tht I know little about dance, but I know an awful lot about young people and educational discipline. A teacher for 43 years (and counting) I have watched these young people assume responsibility and handle it with an aplomb tht would put adults to shame. With the exception of the very little ones, no one is backstage "shushing" these kids..or reminding them of what comes next. These young people are well trained and their product demonstrates their preparedness. Finally, they are happy to perform. They try their best; they succeed; they enjoy the success; they go back to work harder for the next time. It's wonderful to be occasionally be a part of this kind of education. Perhaps one or two of these kids will go on to dance professionally...but ALL of them will go on to be disciplined "performers" in whatever fields they find themselves. Kudos to the staff and to the kids!

the way they responded to my "acting class."

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the opportunities for as many young people as possible.

More feedback...

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

the respect these young people showed me, their instructors, themselves.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always professional and very friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build an adequate small performance space of their own.

Ways to make it better...

It couldn't have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

trying to offer the best instruction at a reasonable price.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish them continued success.

They're a wonderful organization committed to furthering the cultural experiences and arts education opportunities available in Westmoreland County. I have worked with them many times over the last ten years, and been extremely impressed by both the professionalism and personability of the staff. They expect their students to strive for the best, and they provide a warm and comfortable environment in which to do so.

The Great!
