Schedule: 2020/2021- still being updated


WAB Holiday Fundraiser, December 2020:

We are going online! Dancers from Willamette Apprentice Ballet and Corvallis Academy of Ballet will film several ballet, character, modern, Chinese, and jazz dance pieces (winter and winter holiday-themed), and then stream these pieces online, attached to a WAB GoFundMe page, starting the week of December 14th, 2020.

We will hold this fundraiser to help raise money for production expenses for future WAB performances and events, the WAB Education Endowment (funding for guest teachers and choreographers), and the Shoe Fairy Fund (providing pointe shoes and other dance shoes for WAB and CAB dancers).

Ten Tiny Dances: January 2021

Mishele Mennett directs the Corvallis edition of Mike Barbor’s Ten Tiny Dances: ten different dance pieces by ten different local choreographers, performed on a stage that is only 4 ft × 4 ft & 18 inches tall! This year’s Ten Tiny Dances will be filmed and streamed online by the Majestic Theatre; the theme of this year’s concert is a focus on dancers, choreographers, music, and stories of artists who are BIPOC.

WAB Student Choreography Showcase (?)

Interesting, exciting new works choreographed and performed by the upcoming generation of choreographers.

WAB-BGB-Merde! circle before the Upper Division Recital, “Fantastic Tales;” June 1st, 2019.

Corvallis Academy of Ballet Annual Recitals:

The annual CAB 2020 Recitals had to be postponed until early August, and they were held as socially distant, In-Studio Recitals, instead of onstage at the Corvallis High School Theater. Depending on where the world is at with a vaccine in 2021, the CAB Recitals might once again be smaller, In-Studio events, and/or prerecorded performances that are streamed online. Stay tuned…
