‘4×8’ performances: Thursday, March 8 intermittently 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 7 intermittently 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Named after special four-foot by eight-foot flooring pieces that allow dancers to execute their movements on a surface that keeps them from being injured, NBT created a series of dances that showcase many styles of choreography. This series of dances, or ‘4×8’, range from the most classical to the very contemporary, reflecting NBT’s versatile repertoire as performed by a dynamic group of professional dancers.

Under the artistic direction of James Canfield, Nevada Ballet Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and the largest professional ballet company and dance academy in the state. Committed to the highest artistic standards, this classically-based company is at home in an eclectic repertory, moving easily from classics to high-energy contemporary ballets.
