City Ballet of Cleveland tours area schools, nursing homes, and the Cleveland Clinic, performing for children and families in our community. These young audiences are introduced to the art of ballet presented by dancers ages 8 to 18, demonstrating the accessibility and transformative nature of ballet.
Outreach performances also allow our dancers to serve as dance ambassadors by taking the time to answer the audience’s questions at the end of each performance.
A unique opportunity came from Intergenerational School, where many students voiced their desire to dance ballet. Through this connection, I will be teaching a ballet class to the Dance Club for young ladies ages 8-12 I am helping to build. The mission is to use ballet to build confidence and poise.
