It is Louisiana Delta Ballet's goal to bring quality ballet to North Louisiana in order to educate our young people in arts enjoyment and appreciation as well as to enthuse the community at large in the passion of ballet. We strive to create an atmosphere of acceptance and appreciation for dance performance and to further the growth of the arts through the development of an audience sensitive to the importance of all artistic undertakings.
The Company consists of pre-professional dancers from a sixteen parish area of North Louisiana. LDB has become a vessel for dancers to pursue a professional dance career and has also contributed to an increase in the appreciation for the arts in the community. Each year, LDB hosts a summer intensive workshop in conjunction with the City of Monroe, featuring Dance Masters such as John Magnus, Valerie Madonia, Thom Clower, Daniel Baudendistel, Davis Roberson, Stacey Calvert, Valerie Robin, D.J. Guthrie, Kersten Todey, and Christian Vincent. The workshop is the official audition site for LDB, and a popular summer program for dancers across the South.
Louisiana Delta Ballet is also proud to be a part of Regional Dance America where the Company has been chosen to perform original choreographic works each year and was recently awarded one of only five "National Choreographic Recognition Awards" for its ballet piece "Waltzes" by John Magnus at the national festival, "Festival de Dance" in Montreal, Canada.
LDB invites you to "Share the Passion" and help improve the arts in North Louisiana by purchasing a ticket to an upcoming show of the 2012-2013 season or by becoming a patron or corporate sponsor.
