Covington Regional Ballet

Founded in 2001, Covington Regional Ballet is the dance performance arm of the Arts Association in Newton County’s Young Artists Programs. Since its inception, CRB has been dazzling audiences of Newton County, and the surrounding area, with two spectacular annual productions: The Nutcracker and a spring ballet. In the Fall of 2012, Covington Regional Ballet expanded its season to include a contemporary production – expanding the artistic and technical strength of its company dancers as well as broadening its audience. Under the direction of Co-Artistic Directors, Ashley Lazenby Swan and Peter Swan, CRB strives to entertain, educate and inspire audiences of all ages, engaging the community to celebrate the arts through a wide variety of dance programming.  

Dance Studio & School:
Mainstream Dance is now The School of Covington Regional Ballet! Mainstream Dance was founded in 2006 and served as the official home of CRB. As of June 1, 2013 the Arts Association and Covington Regional Ballet assumed the operation of Mainstream Dance. The Arts Association will continue to provide the high standard of dance education that Mainstream has offered for the past 7 years in conjunction with the high caliber of dance performance and training offered through Covington Regional Ballet. This acquisition enables the long-term sustainability, growth and development of both the company and the studio working toward the same mission and goals.

Ballet Company:
Covington Regional Ballet is committed to the production and presentation of high quality dance programming, with the specific goals of providing local dancers with pre-professional instruction and performance opportunities.

Auditions for company are held throughout the year for students ages 8 - 18. Company members are cast and perform in all CRB dance productions including a contemporary fall performance, the Nutcracker and a spring ballet. Dancers with less experience may audition for roles in the public cast of the productions.
