For more than 25 years, LBC’s community outreach efforts have introduced area
under-served and at-risk populations of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds to dance education and appreciation. LBC is committed to fostering an interest in dance and making ballet accessible to all residents of the Loudoun community and the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area.
LBC includes as many interested senior citizens and people with disabilities as possible in its performances. LBC has long-standing participation by seniors in the Party Scene
of The Nutcracker, and also casts people with physical, visual, hearing, and/or intellectual disabilities.
As LBC productions are held at local high schools, each performance offers local students a hands-on opportunity to provide lighting and sound for the productions.
LBC invites host high schools’ Orchestra Ensembles to perform before the ballet performance and at intermission. Orchestra students benefit from the performance experience, while the community is enriched by the live Orchestra music.
LBC is a member of the Loudoun Arts Council and has shared the stage with the Loudoun Symphony in several performances. LBC’s collaboration with the Loudoun Symphony enables families in the community to expose their children to both the beauty of music and dance at an early age.
LBC participates in many “First Fridays” in Leesburg, distributing information about upcoming performances while in costume and reminding them of their local resident performing arts company. LBC also promotes Leesburg and Loudoun landmarks through “Where’s Waldo,” placing Waldo the nutcracker at various locations throughout the County and inviting Facebook followers to identify his location.
The Loudoun Ballet Company continues to draw routine attendance from the residents of the DC metropolitan area due to our well known reputation for high quality ballet productions as well as our close proximity to Washington, DC.
