Under the artistic direction of Toni Pimble and managing director, Riley Grannan, this 20-member ensemble blends classical and contemporary works, along with educational programs seen by an audience of more than 75,000 in travels covering an average of 25,000 road miles annually. EBC is one of only two northwest companies on the roster of the Western States Arts Federation touring program which has, for the past six years, been funded by the National Endowment for the Arts dance company program.
Educational programs are also a focus of EBC activities, including affiliations with Young Audiences Inc., the Lincoln Center Project, the Washington State cultural enrichment program and Artist-In-Education programs promoted through local and regional arts councils.
The Company's repertoire includes many full length ballets ranging from classics from the romantic period, such as Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty, to more contemporary pieces, such as Pimble's Alice In Wonderland, Children of the Raven, and Charles Bennett's Dracula. Many half-program pieces choreographed by Pimble and other well-known choreographers including Jessica Lang, Lynne Taylor-Corbett, Lynda Martha, Bruce Marks, Charles Bennett and Vasilli Sulich. Recent collaborations include Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Pink Martini, Floydian Slips, and Curtis Salgado.
