Louisiana Delta Ballet is indeed fortunate to have Missy Crain as our Artistic Director. Among her many contributions and accomplishments, one stands above the rest – the LDB original ballet, “Power and Grace''. Inspired while sitting in her Church listening to a sermon about what we can “give in return” for the blessings in our life, Mrs. Crain realized her gift! This inspirational work features our amazing LDB dancers along with local and professional vocalists and community leaders sharing the stage to bring the audience an uplifting performance like none other in our area. Upon completion of the ballet, Mrs. Crain told our company dancers, “If we perform it, they will come,” and did they ever! When it was first performed, there were over 1500 people in attendance. Since its debut in 2000, “Power and Grace'' has become a well-known community favorite, and it continues to inspire audiences of all ages. Although it is not performed annually, LDB has become known for this signature work and the audiences keep coming!
