The Chamber Ballet of Corvallis is the performing company of the Regional School of Ballet. Under the guidance of its director, Shelly Svoboda, the Regional School of Ballet happily celebrates its thirtieth anniversary. Mrs. Svoboda, after performing for six years with the Eugene Ballet Company, had the opportunity to buy the Corvallis School of Ballet.
Mrs. Svoboda has a significant connection to the school as she began learning ballet in the school under the direction of Bob Irwin. Mr. Irwin had owned the Corvallis School of Ballet since 1954 then turned the school over to his son Tom Irwin, and from Tom on to Shelly. Chamber Ballet of Corvallis host and perform in the all community Nutcracker and Dance Gallery -a concert with local and non-local dance companies.
