Dayton Ballet

Dayton Ballet begins its 2016–2017 Excite Season with a brand-new story ballet fitting to the autumn season. Dracula: Bloodlines will feature brand-new costumes and choreography, all set to a new musical score to be performed live by the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Dayton Opera vocalists in the exquisite Victoria Theatre. In December, The Nutcracker returns with the Dayton Philharmonic once again providing live music for the holiday classic and family tradition. For 2017, Dayton Ballet presents two exciting repertory shows. The first, in February, features duets and the magic that happens when two dancers take the stage alone. The second shines a spotlight on the ingenuity and talent of some of the most talented female choreographers of our time.

PIZZA PRELUDES The Thursday evening performances of February 10 & March 30 include a Pizza Prelude (complimentary pizza appetizers at 7:00 pm, provided by our good friends at Uno's). These Thursday evening performances start at 7:30 rather than the typical 8:00, giving our patrons plenty of time to get home early on the weeknight.
