It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Barbara Weisberger, founder of Pennsylvania Ballet, passed away on December 23, 2020.

Mrs. Weisberger was a true visionary, a natural leader and a perpetually creative artist. A pioneer of every important movement in American ballet, Mrs. Weisberger was a remarkable force and we are forever grateful for the indelible impact she made on our art form. The Pennsylvania Ballet is the world-renowned institution it is today because of Mrs. Weisberger’s artistic courage and fortitude.

We send our deepest condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mrs. Weisberger. The Pennsylvania Ballet will dance on in Barbara Weisberger’s memory forever.
