Company

Canyon Concert Ballet’s main company and CCB2 (a training company for dancers ages 16-18), currently includes 16 dancers under the direction of Erica Rothfuss.  Company and CCB2 dancers perform a mixed repertoire that ranges from original full-length ballets such as The Nutcracker, Cinderella, and The Little Mermaid, to cutting-edge contemporary ballets in 3 full-length productions annually.   As a growing company, CCB is a diverse group of dancers who have an extensive background in classical ballet, who are generally 18 years or older and have completed approximately 10 years of training.  Our dancers include college students, dancers who have moved on to other full-time careers and family or dancers who are working toward a professional career in dance.  All see the benefit of the rigorous training opportunities available to them through the School and the extensive performing opportunities available to them through the Company.  All dancers show personal and artistic maturity and are able to perform in a wide-range of styles.
