The venues of the Dayton Ballet is the historic 1,139 seat Victoria Theatre and the state-of-the-art Schuster Center, which accommodates 2,300 patrons. Over 40 performances are presented throughout each season.
Operating under the artistic leadership of Karen Russo Burke, the company is part of a larger parent organization, The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance, on which it relies upon for its administrative and operational leadership and support.
