Virginia National Ballet (formerly Gainesville Ballet) is a young company presenting fresh, exciting premieres each season that have thrilled audiences with a combination of great choreography and music, award winning dancers, and beautiful scenery and costumes.  Highlights have been Carmina Burana, Carmen, Collection (a group of short contemporary pieces infusing pop, hip hop, and techno), La Bohème, Snow White, and Bohemian Rhapsody (a hard rock ballet to the music of Queen.)  Virginia National Ballet was a 2016 and 2017 Finalist of the Seefeldt Awards for Artistic Excellence, and performed at the International Ballet Festival in Managua Nicaragua.  The company is an Affiliate Arts Organization of the Hylton Performing Arts Center and has also performed at the Ernst Cultural Center.   Virginia National Ballet is led by Artistic Director Rafik Hegab, originally from Cairo and a Principal Dancer with the Cairo Opera Ballet Company.  He was also a 2017 Seefeldt Award Finalist for Outstanding Individual Artist. His choreography has received great reviews on,, Inside Nova, Fauquier Times, and Bull Run Observer. He was a guest choreographer for Young Artists of America at the Music Center at Strathmore, and the performance was broadcast on PBS.  You can see videos of dancers in the studio and get more information on our Facebook page:
