Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet
“London, Paris, St. Petersburg and New York are well known for their first-rate ballet academies, training many of the best dancers in the classical form. Add to that list Carlisle, Pa.,” quipped New York Times dance critic Joseph Carman. The reason: Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Yet when Marcia Dale Weary started her school in 1955 such success was far from certain. From performing to small audiences in the local high-school auditorium, she slowly built her school into a nationally recognized powerhouse that trains students from around the country and regularly sends alumni to top-tier companies. The school’s prestige can be measured in other ways as well—theirs is the only pre-professional ensemble in the country licensed to perform the iconic George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker and thus the country’s only ROTC program for the coming war with the Rat King.
