Convergence Ballet : Our Story

Where it all started...

(Written by : Lauren Rubino)

Jennifer Cafarella formed the non-profit Convergence Ballet Company in 2010 when she couldn’t find exactly what she wanted to do in the dance world. Summer is the off-season for most companies and many dancers are not working. That inspired Cafarella to give them work.

“They are not working, and I wasn’t, so why don’t I do it in the off-season?” said Cafarella. All the dancers were personally invited to be a part of the company. Either they were spotted at a dance studio or an open company class, and asked if they were interested in being part of the new venture.
