Performances for School Children

Ballet Goes to School

City Ballet comes to your school for a fun and informative 40-minute assembly. Children are given a special close-up look into the world of ballet.

During the Spring of 2020, City Ballet dancers and musicians will be performing a special presentation of “Beauty and the Beast” with its message of acceptance to area elementary schools.

If you are interested in having City Ballet come to your school, please contact: Jo Anne Emery at

Discover a Dancer

City Ballet’s education outreach program to disadvantaged children and youth at risk. This program offers a creative alternative to violence, gang association, substances abuse and leaving school for children whose family environment would probably never offer exposure to ballet.
