Poised for the Future

Carlisle, PA ()

When Marcia Dale Weary started Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB), it took vision, tenacity and hard work. Nearly 61 years later, this same determination is what is keeping CPYB strong and relevant. Today, CPYB made several significant announcements:

  • The appointment of five new board members.

  • The renewal of CEO Nicholas Ade’s contract up to seven years.

  • The addition of new faculty.

  • The elevation of the director of artistic programming and school principal positions.

  • The growth of the Children’s Division due to recent enhancements.

“CPYB traces its roots to a barn in rural Carlisle, Pa. Now we have educational facilities in Carlisle and in Camp Hill. CPYB has become not only a vital member of our community, but also a celebrated dance education leader attracting both national and international students,” says Donna Desfor, CPYB board president. “It’s vital that we proactively ensure the sustainability of this gem that is CPYB to ensure all children have access to world-class dance training.” READ MORE
