Alumni

Stay Connected with CPYB.

In 2005, the Stars of CPYB returned to Central PA to show their gratitude with a performance celebrating Marcia.

Welcome Home

Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet alumni have danced professionally in companies throughout the world since 1955. In addition, our alumni have used their skills learned through their lessons in ballet at CPYB to achieve personal and professional goals in all avenues of life. 

Our students have gone on to train at the college level, become teachers, entered the medical field, become authors and artisans, in addition to numerous other successful career paths.
