We believe that everyone deserves access to and can benefit from high quality arts experiences. Dance, and ballet specifically, can be a vehicle for cultural education, as well as the physical, social, and emotional development of an individual and community. Ballet as an art form combines many creative expressions, and thus can be used to bring together diverse societies. Based in these beliefs, this educational outreach initiative aims to:
Foster meaningful partnerships that develop community arts education in Dallas
Provide exposure to high-quality arts, ballet and dance education for Dallas students
Hosted at The Hockaday School

This lecture-demonstration performance is designed for fourth through twelfth grade students and will last approximately one hour. Students attending are elementary, middle and high school students from a number of local Dallas schools.
The professional dancers of Ballet Dallas will perform excerpts of the Company’s spring performance, Flourish. The program will conclude with a Q&A between the students, Company dancers and the Artistic Director. This performance is graciously hosted at The Hockaday School in partnership with United to Learn.
