About Host Studio: The School of Classical Ballet

The School of Classical Ballet was founded in 1985 by Anna Myer and Patricia Adelmann. For 30 years the school has provided students with classical ballet training and helped to develop student appreciation for dance as an art form. In 2009, under the direction of Ariella Amshalem and Kirsta Sendziak, additional dance forms were incorporated into The School of Classical Ballet curricula. Kirsta Sendziak continues to provide students the quality of instruction upon which the school was founded. The School of Classical Ballet is a technique-based school. Performances are all-inclusive opportunities for students to showcase their technique and gain experience performing for an audience.

About the Orpheum

The Orpheum was built on the site of the Boston Music Hall in 1852. In 1900 the building was gutted and rebuilt within the old walls for conversion into a vaudeville theatre and reopened on February 12, 1905 as the Empire Theatre. When Percy Williams took over the theatre on September 3, 1906 it was renamed the Orpheum but sold shortly thereafter to Marcus Loew in 1910. In January 1916 the theatre reopened hosting a combination of vaudeville and film. Vaudeville was replaced in the 1930s with first-run double features. In 1965 film distributors dropped the exclusive first run policy for downtown theatres. Loew’s abandoned the Orpheum Theatre in 1972. It was renamed the Aquarius and was once again a home for live performances. In May of 1974, Sarah Caldwell moved the Opera Company in and renamed it the Orpheum. It now plays host to a succession of live performances.
