Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet

a Dance School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Marcia Dale Weary’s love of dance compelled her to open Marcia Dale Weary’s School of Classical Ballet—now Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet—in 1955. Throughout the years, CPYB has developed a curriculum that is focused on building technical strength, stamina and flexibility, as well as nurturing artistic development. While the school’s academic programs are designed with the serious ballet student in mind, CPYB attracts students of all ages, with varying degrees of interest and talent, who wish to pursue dance instruction in an inspiring, enriched learning environment.
