Cincinnati Ballet: History and Mission

They've been delighting hearts and stimulating minds since 1963-which means over 50 years of pliés, pirouettes, arabesques, and glissades. More recently, they've defined their mission as an attempt to "enrich, expand, and excel in the art of dance through performance, a high-caliber academy, and impactful education and outreach in local to global communities." So, without further ado, let's explore the academy and outreach.

Academy, Outreach, and Beyond

The Cincinnati Ballet Academy is the perfect opportunity for your youngster to get his or her start on the exciting adventure of ballet. In fact, new students ages two to nine can now take their first class for free!

However, your kid, grandkid, niece, or nephew isn't the only one who can benefit from having this top-notch organization in the community. For example, Ballet Moves is a partnership between the Cincinnati Ballet and the Cincinnati Children's Hospital's Department of Physical Therapy; together, they're bringing classes to children and young adults afflicted with Down syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. What a mission!

We encourage you to connect with other ballet aficionados on Facebook to learn about everything they're doing.
