Since its inception, the Ballet Ensemble has become a regional ballet company, encompassing the geographical areas of Plattsburgh, Lake Placid, Keene, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake. The organization was designed to develop a community of young people from the North Country, and to provide performing experience for student-dancers in the art of ballet and contemporary dance. The North Country Ballet Ensemble endeavors to offer live concert dance performances in the North Country so that it is understood and appreciated as an art form. At the same time it is the intent of the organization to provide a background in the classics and more modern day ballets for young dancers to enhance their dance education. Additionally, the NCBE's mission includes educational outreach to underserved communities and populations, which might otherwise not see live (dance) performance.
