BALLET SUN VALLEY’SDANCE EDUCATION PROGRAM




The 2020 Education Program featured a new virtual format. We were thrilled to have Peter Boal, Artistic Director of Pacific Northwest Ballet, teach classes for our Intermediate through Advanced Level students. Mr. Boal joined PNB in 2005; prior to joining the company, his professional dance career included 22 years with New York City Ballet. He was also a full-time faculty member at the School of American Ballet from 1997 to 2005. His participation in the BSV education program is an incredible opportunity for students to receive instruction from one of the leaders in ballet education.
