The Elite Corps de Ballet of Long Island

The Elite Corps de Ballet of Long Island - a non-for-profit ballet company that  was established by Artistic Director, Susan Nachtrab, in the Summer of 2008, in hopes of creating strong connections with local dance schools and students through the presentation of an annual ballet performance of “The Nutcracker”.  It has been in recent years the Mrs. Nachtrab has felt a longing to branch out to the community and to other local dance schools in order to form a bond, whereas dance students from the local community, regardless of their primary source of dance instruction, may be able to grow as young artists, performers and students while gaining a sense of incomparable professionalism.

Ruiz Theater… we ask that all dancers and parents respect their rules.  The ECB is also happy to welcome Ms Audrey Mathias, a young and accomplished professional ballet dancer who will dance the role of The Snow Queen & The Sugar Plum Fairy.  All dancer should feel fortunate to learn from our guest artist and treat her with the utmost respect and courtesy.  At this time all tickets are now $30. All fundraising money is past due and must be given in by the Stage Rehearsal on December 29th.
