Schrader Youth Ballet Company (SYBC) is a non-profit organization established in 1985 to promote and foster dance in the Parkersburg, WV area. In addition to providing classes and camps for students ages 3 through adult, the company stages performances several times a year. Our studio is located in downtown Parkersburg, at 601 Market Street, just blocks from the Parkersburg Art Center, The Actor's Guild of Parkersburg, and the Historic Smoot Theatre.
The School of the Schrader Youth Ballet is owned and operated by Velma Schrader, who has been teaching dance in the Mid-Ohio Valley for 48 years. Mrs. Schrader is also the founder and artistic director of the SYBC.
SYBC is supported by ticket sales, donations, fundraisers, grants, and tuition. We also gratefully acknowledge Our Community's Foundation and The Ohio River Border Initiative for their support of our holiday presentation of "The Nutcracker" and "The Little Matchgirl".
For more information about classes, performances, or other events, please contact us. Our class registration packets for the 2014-15 Season will be available soon!
