New Jersey Ballet rescheduled at The Centenary Stage Company

Anyone who has spent time in the beautiful, hilly region of Northwest New Jersey knows there’s nothing like a slip n’ slide down Schooley’s Mountain to introduce adrenaline into one’s veins and give a person pause about traveling on a snowy night. 
            That vivid experience was in the minds of the performers and directors of the New Jersey Ballet and the Centenary Stage Company staff last Saturday evening, when the snow began to fall earnest in Warren and Morris County.   

What is now recognized as a storm of historic proportions was the cause of only the second cancelled performance in Centenary Stage Company’s 25 year history.   In a series of rapid phone calls and weather surveys, the performance of the NJ Ballet’s Latin Beat II evening was quickly rescheduled to the following weekend, and will now be performed on Saturday, Nov 5 at 2 PM, hopefully without further weather challenges. 

The Centenary Stage Company announced that patrons holding tickets for the Saturday Oct 29th performance will have their current tickets honored on Nov 6.    Additional tickets are also available for sale at the CSC Box office (908-979-0900) . 

The company will perform “Ballet with a Latin Beat II” on Nov 6, inspired by the golden age of Spanish Baroque, and celebrating the rhythms and cultures of Brazil, Cuba and Mexico.  Featured choreographers will include Pedro Ruiz (recently featured on the PBS Television  program “Coming Home”), Humberto Teixeira and Junio Teixeira. 

For further information about the reschedule performance, contact the CSC Box Office at 908-979-0900, or visit online at, where tickets may also be purchased.
