Artistic Director

Slawomir Wozniak

Former Principle Dancer of Teatr Wielki in Łódź as well as The National Opera in Warsaw. Slawomir founded "Ballet and Friends" in 1982 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing only the highest quality ballet education and performance possible.


Gifts from foundations, corporations and individuals comprise the preponderance of the organization’s budget. Financial contributions to our organization produce a prism effect as they disperse light to enhance the lives of young dancers as well as a diverse array of children throughout the Valley.
