Organization Background

As the only professional dance company in northwestern New Jersey, Roxey Ballet is serving its public exceptionally well. It is dedicated to bringing high quality contemporary performances and substantive education programs not only within its local area, but well beyond.

The organization is totally committed to its basic mission, formally adopted by RB's board of trusteess: "to build meaningful bridges through dance within our community, across cultures and populations. The company will deliver artistic and cultural excellence. It will be an all-inclusive organization, fostering a creative environment of growth for artists of all levels. With unique and diverse works, taking traditions to the next level, Roxey Ballet strives to inspire audiences and artists alike and seeks to preserve and advance the fine art of dance for generations to come".

In fulfillment of this mission, RB is proactively reaching out to serve those who might not otherwise enjoy high level arts programming - many new to the arts - while simultaneously serving a dedicated and knowledgeable audience.

Its performances are designed to serve all levels of interest, from the most sophisticated audience members to family fare. Its education initiatives reach deeply into communities with in-school programming, residencies, and specialized programs for those with physical, mental and emotional disabilities.

Now in its 21st season Roxey Ballet has embarked upon the next phase of its journey, and is doing so with renewed energy and commitment. With an increase in management staff, added to a roster of exceptional performing and teaching artists, Artistic Director Mark Roxey is building an organization with a strong artistic presence. Together with a repertory of high caliber works, he is engaging choreographers, composers and artists who share in this vision while fulfilling the organizational mission overall.

Roxey Ballet is experiencing an enormously successful season. From the fully sold out "Dracula" in October to the season's anticipated closing with "Mowgli", RB's present season is truly spectacular. The company's programs for next season are anticipated to be equally, if not even more exciting. With stunning plans to co-produce "Carmina Burana" with Princeton Pro Musica with full orchestra in the upcoming season, Roxey Ballet is truly fulfilling its mission of producing high quality programs that will make a difference in the lives of those who experience them.
