RSB held auditions Thursday evening for the Professional Division for the 2022-2023 school year. So excited to see so many young dancers interested in taking their training to the next level!


As we prepare for the Professional Division audition this week, we want to share a little about what some of our alumni are up to! ChrissyAnn Carpenter, 2016 graduate, finished out 2021 performing in Brooklyn Ballet’s Nutcracker and City Ballet of Boston’s Urban Nutcracker. She said, “the professional division gave me the clean technique needed to continue my career into college and beyond and RDT prepared me work ethic-wise with classes and rehearsals—just a rigorous schedule! I am grateful for my time at RSB/RDT.” She is pictured here as the wizard in Firebird, one of her favorite RDT roles and memories!

Today's faculty spotlight is about Nina Jonson. She joined the faculty of The Raleigh School of Ballet in 1994.  Ms. Jonson holds a B.F.A. in dance from the University of Utah.  Her training includes work with Yvonne Chouteau, Patricia Wilde, Valentina Pereyaslavic, Marjorie Tallcheif, and Rosella Hightower among others.  Ms. Jonson performed with Ballet Oklahoma and the Jackson Ballet, and for five years prior to moving to Raleigh, she taught ballet and pointe in the Fairfax County Class Etc. program.  In 2001 and 2002, Ms. Jonson became a certified Pilates Instructor.

We are so glad to be back in the studio this week after the holidays! Pointe 1 students are balancing in sousus and Pointe 3 students are working on échappes.

From our RSB family to you and yours we wish you a happy, safe and relaxing holiday season!
Yesterday Ms. El-Khoury and Ms. Horowitz taught a contemporary partnering class! The dancers learned how to share weight, perform counterbalances and suspend each other.
