50 Year Celebration


MAKE PLANS NOW for a Full Day of Anniversary Gatherings, Performances, and Celebrations

Saturday, May 13th

10:30-11:45am: Experience a ballet barre in TTB state-of-the-art studios.

Take barre class with beloved teachers Joyce Straub Fausone and Nancy Carroll Abbey. Tour the impressive new TTB facilities. This class will be geared toward those who (at some point in their lives) danced at the intermediate to advanced levels. The class will be primarily at the Barre and lots of stretching (no jumping or pirouettes). If you have ballet shoes, please wear them. If you do not, socks or bare feet will be fine. Unlike back in the day, you will not be required to wear black and pink; Simply wear comfortable clothing or dance wear.


12:00-2:00pm: “Cheers and Beers to 50 years” Alumni Social at Ology Northside (same plaza as TTB) with provided snacks and cash bar.

2:00-6:00pm: Nap and primp on your own


6:00-7:00pm: Happy Hour at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall lobby
Cash Bar (Donors of $300+ get complimentary drink tickets and parking passes)

Transcendent beauty, power, and a quest for forbidden love, including excerpts from Swan Lake Acts II & IV, and contemporary world premieres to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. (Welcome/Acknowledgment of all Alumni) tickets range from $38-$65
