From the Director

So.. it has been a little over one month since we landed here from Shanghai. What a month! We have launched this beautiful new website thanks to our talented marketing manager Mr. Nathan Eldridge, added two shows to our opening performance run of "Three Tales By Poe"by our Artistic Director, Ms. Nell Shipman, are continuing our collaborative work on "An Alice Symphony" with Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) and Maine College of Art (MECA) thanks to work by our CORPS director Mr. Roberto Forelo, and have kicked off our 2015-2016 Portland School of Ballet year, headed by Ms. Daniela Sabbath, with a fantastic open house. 

All of this while finding a place to live and getting to know our new city! I have had the pleasure of meeting with many other community arts leaders and I am overwhelmed by the support that Portland has for its arts community. Please stay tuned to this site for more information regarding Portland Ballet and all of the exciting new things to come!

And, of course, thank you for being a part of Portland Ballet.
