Ballet Western Reserve Receives Donation from Premier Bank

Ballet Western Reserve Receives Donation from Premier Bank

Youngstown, OH  (December 15, 2021) – Premier Bank recently donated a check to the Ballet Western Reserve for $10,000. The funds will be used to underwrite the holiday classic, The Nutcracker and serve at the sole “Premier” sponsor of the 60th Anniversary season of the Ballet Western Reserve.

“The Nutcracker production was the only full local production of this family classic in the Mahoning Valley,” explained Katie Merrill, Executive Director, Ballet Western Reserve. “Our production, which was held the first weekend of December, included a full cast of local dancers, a professional orchestra comprised of YSU Dana School of Music faculty and guest artist, Austin Dabney, a BWR alumni, who went on to dance professionally for the Boston Ballet and other prestigious companies.”

“We are proud to be able to support the Ballet Western Reserve as they work to provide excellence in dance education to children and teenagers in the Mahoning Valley which enlightens, entertains, and inspires passion and joy,” said Trish Gelsomino, Foundation Giving Coordinator, Premier Bank. “Ballet Western Reserve has grown to become the region’s premier dance academy and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of that.”
