The Northbay Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) has a highly
talented and professional staff of trained and experienced
performers. Formed by Marcella Contessi Smith over thirty
years ago, Contessi Ballet was the first ballet school in
Petaluma. Mrs. Smith, a native of Florence, Italy, believes in
the classical tenets of talent and hard work when it comes to
learning dance. The school's alumni have gone on to study
at prestigious schools in San Francisco, Washington DC and
Canada. In two studios adults and children can be enriched
by classic Contessi Ballet, Modern, and Lyrical. Also enjoy
Hip Hop, Zumba, Bellydance, Ballroom, and Romani Gypsy
dance for good health and the opportunity to perform at events.
