Rating: 5

Under the leadership of Nancy Davis and Jim Lane, each with Balanchine training and extensive, accomplished careers as ballet dancers, The Portland Ballet sets a high barre of excellence for its students. The young dancers respond well to this expectation of excellence, set in an environment that is disciplined yet caring and compassionate. TPB dancers are motivated by multiple opportunities each year to perform in professionally-produced, public productions. Inspired by the beauty and athleticism of ballet, they strive to do their best on stage. The habits learned in studio and on stage translate into achievement, confidence and a sense of community in every aspect of their lives.
