The website, accessible at, is dedicated to redefining how the community engages with Canton Ballet online, providing seamless navigation to explore its rich educational offerings, current programming, and upcoming performances.

“With the launch of our new website, made possible through the support of ArtsinStark, we are excited to offer our community a dynamic and accessible hub for all things Canton Ballet,” said Joy L. Raub, Executive Director for Canton Ballet. “This digital transformation represents our commitment to enhancing our online presence, providing easier access to our organization’s diverse offerings.”

The website’s user-centric design intends to simplify access to the School of Canton Ballet enrollment information and ticket purchasing for upcoming public performances. Additionally, it will serve as a repository for educational initiatives, current events, news releases, and a wealth of additional resources.

“We believe that this new design will not only elevate our audience’s experience with the Ballet but will also serve as a vital resource for current and future students, as well as the wider community,” remarked Jennifer Catazaro Hayward, Artistic Director for Canton Ballet.

The launch of the website coincides with the anticipation of Canton Ballet’s upcoming semester and spring performances of Come Dance With Me! on April 12 & 14, which promise to captivate audiences with Big Band favorites by the John Trapani Big Band and a World Premiere of a ballet by Canton Ballet alumnus Zachary Catazaro.
