SNB has expanded it’s performance component to include performances throughout the year in Reno, Tahoe, Carson City and Virginia City. SNB performs annually as part of Reno’s ARTOWN Festival and at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival Monday Night Showcase Series.
SNB’s Educational Component is made up of a Trainee/Apprentice Program; an Educational Outreach Program; a Dancing In The Schools Program; a Young Choreographer Program; Ballet Intensive Workshops and an Educational Lecture series.
SNB continues to expand to encourage talented students to remain in the area to pursue their careers and others to come to this area to take advantage of the cultural enrichment. SNB is dedicated to increasing audiences for dance through both education and exposure to high-caliber, entertaining programs designed to please all ages. Dance has something for everyone.
