Dear SNB and SNBA Families,

Hold your pliés and get ready to grand jeté into the future with Sierra Nevada Ballet and Sierra Nevada Ballet Academy! Our ballet family is about to embark on an exciting journey as we pirouette into a new home at 500 E. Moana Lane, Reno, 89502. Beyond the change in location, this marks the beginning of a new chapter—a vibrant arts hub that’s poised to be a haven for creativity.

Collaborative Arts Hub: This isn’t just a relocation; it’s a symphony of collaboration! SNB is proud to announce partnerships with esteemed contributors—Steinway Piano Gallery and Music School, Sierra School of Performing Arts, Silver State Storytellers, TL Media, Dr. Jayson Weir, and Dance PT, Carri Cameron. Together, we’re crafting a Center for Performing Arts, a unified space where ballet, musical theater, filmmaking, writing, and piano seamlessly come together.

Visual Arts Lobby and Performance Space: Picture this—a Visual Arts Lobby adorned with works from our community artists and a dedicated performance space (theater) for intimate dance, musical theater, film, and music presentations. It’s not just a venue; it’s an immersive experience.

Immersive Experience for Families: Families, prepare to immerse yourselves in the arts! Our new space offers students the opportunity to explore various art forms in one vibrant location. From ballet to piano, from PT services to a lobby showcasing community visual artists, every corner will echo with creativity.

Renovations Underway: The stage is set, and renovations are already in progress. Collaborating with the talented architect George Ghusn, we’re creating beautiful studios designed to inspire. Anticipate completion by January 1, 2024.

Closure Dates: To ensure a seamless transition, SNB and SNBA will be closed from Dec. 16, 2023, to Jan. 8, 2024 (dates subject to change based on the renovation schedule). A small SNB Opening celebration in January and a Grand Opening extravaganza in May will mark our triumphant return.

Join Our Dance to Success: Now, here’s where you become our dance partner in a unique and enchanting way! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our “Dance to Our Dreams” campaign. Your support will not only contribute to transforming this new space into a haven of creativity but will also help us achieve a crucial dream—updating our bathrooms and adding dressing rooms for our dancers.

Every Step Tells a Story – and You Can Be a Part of It: At Sierra Nevada Ballet, every step tells a story. Join us in this dance to success, where the stage is set for a breathtaking performance. By making a donation, you become a vital part of our narrative and help bring our dreams to life.
