Board of directors

The Ballet Chesapeake Board of Directors was initiated in June 2001 when a core group of Parents’ Guild members saw that the administrative needs of the organization were outgrowing the more informal Parents’ Guild. The established Board continues today to support Ballet Chesapeake to accomplish its mission and goals as the company continues to grow. This year the Board has expanded to include new members from the local business community. With the drive of the Board, ballet Chesapeake has been better able to meet its programming goals and reach out to our local and state communities.

The company is very fortunate to have the following community members on the
Ballet Chesapeake Board of Directors:

Anthony Gibbs - President

Gigi Devanney - Vice President
Kaitlin Weber - Executive Director

Barclay Gibbs - Artistic Director
Rob Adkins - Treasurer
