The Hampton Roads Civic Ballet will present its spring performance at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) on Saturday, May 1 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 2 at 3 p.m. at the Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium, Templin Hall on the Hampton campus.
The Hampton Roads Civic Ballet, which holds residency at TNCC’s auditorium, was founded in 1948 and provides a pre-professional performing experience for intermediate and advanced students at the Academy of Ballet in Hampton. The nonprofit organization combines classical ballet and contemporary choreography to provide students with a versatile dance experience while teaching them to appreciate set design, costume creation and more. The students present two productions annually in addition to community performances at local festivals, schools, hospitals and nursing homes.
