Effective September 22, 2016, Dance Augusta and Augusta Ballet School will be named Colton Ballet Company of Augusta and Colton Ballet School of Augusta. Both entities are officially listed as Dance Augusta DBA Colton Ballet Company and Augusta Ballet School DBA Colton Ballet School. The status of both (profit/non-profit) remain unchanged as does the artistic direction.
This change reflects the deep commitment of both organizations to reflect and honor the legacy of Founder, Ron Colton.
Join us in honoring the memory of Founder/Director Ron Colton, who passed away on August 3rd after devoting over 50 years to the development of dance in Augusta.
