Spreading the joy of dance throughout Cincinnati

Students and adults alike gain a greater understanding of ballet as an art form and experience of the joy of dance on multiple levels.

Cincinnati Ballet’s education and outreach programming is designed to coincide with teachers’ classroom curriculum, provide aid with proficiency testing, and all of our programs meet the national and state standards for arts education.

Outside of the classroom, Cincinnati Ballet contributes to many programs, events and cultural initiatives. We strive to continue our mission by reaching into every neighborhood and community in Greater Cincinnati and beyond. From intimate performances by dancers of every level, to invitations to events and announcements of our public appearances you can find many ways to experience Cincinnati Ballet.

“Research demonstrates that exposure to the arts will improve a child’s creativity, self-esteem, and overall capacity for learning.”
