Akron’s Ballet Excel Ohio, formerly the Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet, has been training young dancers, many of whom go on to professional careers, for 44 years. Its company includes about 40 dancers ages 8-18.
Each spring, the company performs a show at the Akron Civic Theatre. This year’s show is Peter Pan, which will have three performances there. The program opens with a dance in seven short parts called Symphonic NANsense, a tribute to the company’s founder Nan Klinger who died in 2003.
Tickets are $10-$25.
