The St. Petersburg Ballet Conservatory is a non-profit organization that recently opened its doors a year ago on February 5, 2018. Its artistic and executive staff strive on providing the community with a positive environment for all dancers to be welcomed and cared for while receiving high quality ballet training in the Tampa Bay Area. Inside its doors, you’ll find young dancers, as young as the age of 5, who are eager to work for and be a part of the wonderful experiences and performance opportunities SPBC has presented before them, including 2 successful student shows thus far into their very first season. When given the proper training and the right climate for development, these dancers have begun to soar to new heights which they did not know were possible! SPBC’s Artistic Director, Servy Gallardo, mentions, “I want our students to learn the requirements of what being a dancer entails. Everything from the basic fundamentals in technique and training, to proper nutrition and body maintenance, to sustaining their individual student responsibilities, to applying correct hair and makeup, to caring responsibly for their costumes, and respectfully appreciating everything this beautiful art form has to offer, “ says Gallardo. “It is important to be knowledgeable in it all.” With these lessons, knowledge in more than just ballet and training can be learned and applied to their everyday and future lives.
