Manassas Ballet Theatre is like a cerberus, with three heads each working together to spread the love of dance. The most prominent head is the ballet company itself: 24 dancers who put on four series of public performances annually at the Hylton Performing Arts Center's dramatically modern hall. Then there's the Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra, which provides live accompaniment to each of these performances. Last is the Manassas Ballet Academy, which uses the Vaganova methodology to teach college-bound students and future pro dancers to express themselves via movement instead of snappy catch phrases.
