Sierra Nevada Ballet Company

Sierra Nevada Ballet has been performing in Northern Nevada since 2001. Currently the organization has an artistic staff of 29 dancers and 10 Trainees, a professional teaching staff, a production staff of five, and an administrative staff of 3. Up to 30 volunteers serving more than 200 hours per year enable Sierra Nevada Ballet to entertain more than 10,000 residents and tourists annually including 4,000 school children. Receiving funding for its educational outreach and public performances from a wide range of institutions and donors, SNB is one of only four arts organizations in the state to receive a Challenge America grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for 2015.

Sierra Nevada Ballet offers a full season of performances from May through December in an 800-square mile service region extending from northeastern California to northwestern Nevada serving a critical need in the region and has grown in popularity and in artistry over its fourteen years. The Sierra Nevada Ballet Board has approved a ten-year plan to include the employment of its dancers and staff for an extended contract period of 10 months per year.
