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 annual productions: the Nutcracker and a spring ballet. In the fall of 2012, Covington Regional Ballet expanded its season to include an annual contemporary production – broadening the artistic and technical strength of its company dancers, as well as expanding 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. Covington Regional Ballet is committed to the production and presentation of high-quality dance, with the specific goals of providing pre-professional instruction and performance opportunities to local dancers.

The School of Covington Regional Ballet exists to inspire, educate and develop comprehensive dance technique for both recreational and pre-professional students. The School offers ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop and musical theater to provide students with the versatility necessary for success in today’s ever-changing dance world. The school encourages the development of positive self-expression through movement while simultaneously instilling lifelong principles of discipline and healthful living.
