Ellicott City Ballerina Project

Founder: Donna Pidel

As Historic Ellicott City’s community ballet performance group, the Ellicott City Ballerina Project’s mission is to enrich the artistic and cultural life of our beloved town. We perform at local events in Howard County and the surrounding areas. Previously, we have performed at Harriet Tubman Day, A Nutcracker Tea at the Old Mill Café, the Oella Mill Holiday Party, the tree lighting at Midnight Madness, the Howard County Chinese Culture Center’s Chinese New Year, and the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration, as well as at Ballet Conservatoire XIV’s winter and spring concerts.

Participation in the Ellicott City Ballerina Project is open to all Ballet Conservatoire XIV students who are in levels Conservatory 3 and 4. If you are interested in joining Ballet Conservatoire XIV, visit our Enrollment page or Contact Us.

After the flood of May 2018, we partnered with local businesses to raise over $6,000 for the Ellicott City Partnership (ECP) to support flood relief efforts. 2019-20 Ballerina Project calendars are still available via the order form below. 100% of the purchase price will be donated to the ECP.
