Bangor Ballet was founded in 1994 to provide performance opportunities for talented young dancers and to grow the audience for dance in Maine. The heart of Bangor Ballet is a foundation in classical ballet training. Company dancers have achieved a high level of technical skill and perform with grace and heart that delights both lifelong ballet fans and those experiencing ballet for the first time. This spring, the company will present a story book classic of the ballet repertoire.
Bangor Ballet is led by a dynamic new Artistic Director, Roberto Forleo. Mr. Forleo was born in Italy and trained there and in Switzerland, where he studied with Maurice Béjart and danced with the Béjart Ballet Lausanne. He has performed professionally with several dance companies in Europe and New York, and toured internationally. Mr. Forleo succeeds Ivy Clear-Forrest as Artistic Director; many of the current company members trained with Ms. Clear-Forrest at the company’s official training school, Thomas School of Dance.
