Our Mission

The North Country Ballet Ensemble (NCBE) is a non-profit performing arts organization with the mission of educating, entertaining, and enriching the lives of young people and their communities through the art of dance.

Sarah Edwards (Senior, 2015)

During my twelve years of dancing with NCBE in the annual productions of The Nutcracker and in various other productions, I have learned, grown, and most importantly, danced, with people that I can consider some of my closest friends. The support that members of this group give to others and the time and effort put into each production are invaluable to everyone involved. My time with NCBE has, without a doubt, made me into the person who I am today, given me lessons that I will carry with me throughout life, and given me some amazing opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. I wouldn’t trade any of the time that I spent with this group for anything else. NCBE has made me a better, stronger person throughout my time with the group, and I will never forget all that I gained from it.
