River Arts Ballet is located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, between Asheville and Hendersonville. It was founded in November of 2014 and opened its doors in March of 2015. Co-Founder and Artistic Director Christina Schreivogel first began dancing in Hendersonville, and when she and her husband Benjamin Schreivogel returned to the area with their family, they saw a need for a new type of Ballet studio.
River Arts Ballet was built from the ground up to safely and accurately mimic a theater stage for training and mentoring Pre Professional Ballet dancers and stumbled across the amazing opportunity to also offer adults, at any level, the same professional environment and expertise.
National and International professional Ballet experience allows the Schreivogels to have a unique perspective and vision for their students. Christina has trained and performed in Italy, England, New York City, Omaha, and Sacramento, where she retired as a Soloist with the Sacramento Ballet. Benjamin has danced professionally with Fort Wayne Ballet, Colombia City Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, and Sacramento Ballet, where he met Christina. They have brought experienced Ballet teachers and wellness experts onto faculty at the studio to provide the best quality training to everyone with a love of dance.
