PODCAST: Rebuilding Roxey Ballet Company

PODCAST: Rebuilding Roxey Ballet Company

This past September, Roxey Ballet Company’s studios, offices, and theatre in the river town of Lambertville were totally destroyed by Hurricane Ida. This coming Sunday, December 19, they’re throwing a big fundraiser - Rise Up and Rebuild the Ballet - at their temporary home, the New Hope Eagle Fire Hall, right across the river from their New Jersey facilities. There will be food, drink, and a lot of dancing.

We recently got the opportunity to sit down with company founder Mark Roxey to talk about rebuilding after Ida, and about how the community has rallied together to save Roxey Ballet Company.

For more information, including tickets to Rise Up and Rebuild the Ballet event or how to donate, visit www.roxeyballet.org.
