One of the jewels of our community is the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet – not only as the premier school for classical ballet training in our region, but also as a resource for our community through its quality ballet performances and its educational offerings.
CRYB enriches the Jamestown and neighboring communities through a ballet repertoire that ranges from the works of the classical masters to today’s contemporary choreography. More than 3,000 individuals a year enjoy CRYB’s performances in the Chautauqua region.
At our studio in Jamestown the CRYB School provides the area’s finest classical ballet training to students of all ages
COVID UPDATE: Thanks to the support of our friends, donors and community, the Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet has emerged from a devastating Spring impacted by the COVID pandemic. Gifts & grants to CRYB have made it possible for us to welcome our students back to study the art form they love.
To ensure that CRYB was able to open as safely as possible, we reduced all class sizes, set up online alternatives when necessary and developed strict safety policies following guidelines from the CDC and NY State.
Your donation today will ensure that we can continue to provide the training and scholarship support our students need during the months ahead and offer performances to the community as soon as safely possible!
