City Ballet of Cleveland is a pre-professional, 501C3 non-profit dance company located at the Cleveland City Dance studios in Shaker Square. The company comprises dancers aged 10–18 years old and is committed to fostering every dancer’s ability and promoting a love of dance through professional training, performance, and community engagement.

Since 2009, the City Ballet of Cleveland has enjoyed the opportunity to perform a short story ballet in many local schools, assisted living facilities, and hospitals. These performances are geared toward audiences of all ages and are received by audience members with awe and excitement.  The performances are free of charge, as it is our way to give back to the community that has influenced many of our dancers. These performances typically last 30–35 minutes, with time saved at the end for questions and answers.
