About Dance Theatre of Pennsylvania

Dance Theatre of Pennsylvania is a not-for-profit, regional ballet company that was formed in 1978 by Marilyn Budzynski.

The Company is based in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and serves Bucks County and the surrounding area. 

Our mission is to provide valuable, pre-professional stage experience for dancers, and equally important, to offer affordable, quality dance performances to our community.

Marilyn Budzynski, formerly with the Pennsylvania Ballet and the New York City Ballet Repertoire, serves as the Company's Artistic Director and Choreographer. Ms. Budzynski brings skill and depth of experience to her dual responsibilities as Artistic Director and supervisor of the dancers' development.

The Company consists of approximately forty dancers ranging in

age from ten to adult. Open auditions for Company membership are held every September. In addition, Dance Theatre

regularly sponsors master classes which are given by world- renowned dancers, choreographers, and teachers.

Dance Theatre has produced many aspiring professional dancers continuing their careers through dance organizations of worldwide acclaim. These include Pittsburgh Ballet, Nashville Ballet, Utah Ballet, Boston Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, North Carolina School of the Arts, and the School of American Ballet.

Nowhere in the Bucks-Mont area can finer preparation for professional careers in dance be found.
