Presenting Sponsor Wilson College

The Chambersburg Ballet presents its inaugural Dance-a-thon, which will be held Sunday, April 3, 2022 from 2pm to 5pm at Wilson College's Laird Hall. Students and company dancers will perform a total of 24 pieces ranging from classical to modern styles, featuring solos, ensembles and pas de deuxes. Each piece has been choreographed by students of the Chambersburg Ballet Theatre (CBT) School or by trainees or dancers of its affiliated performing company, The Chambersburg Ballet. Friends, family and the public are invited to drop-in or stay for the entire event to see these young dancers express their creativity and energy through dance. Dance-a-thon is open and free to the public from 2pm to 5pm. To see a list of the performances and dancers, click here.

Dance-a-thon is a fundraiser for the Chambersburg Ballet Guild, a 501-c 3 non profit that supports the Chambersburg Ballet, and is being sponsored by Wilson College.
