MAKE AN IMPACT WHILE BEING INSPIRED, CONNECTED, AND EMPOWERED!
Cincinnati Ballet’s Étoile group brings together remarkable women to connect, network, celebrate, and support each other through exclusive events and behind-the-scenes interactions with today’s outstanding female choreographers, dancers, and community leaders.
In its seventh season, the 2021-2022 Étoile series focuses on the efforts to promote mainstage choreographic works by emerging female choreographers such as Melissa Gelfin De-Poli and established female choreographers including Helen Pickett. As a bonus, this Season’s series celebrates Artistic Director Victoria Morgan’s 25th and final season at Cincinnati Ballet.
Through the collective giving of its members, Étoile provides annual support of female choreography and leadership at Cincinnati Ballet. This support has helped Cincinnati Ballet become an early advocate, as well as establish a reputation in the dance industry, of welcoming choreographic works created by women.
To celebrate this continued achievement, the culmination of the series will highlight the Étoile-sponsored Choreographer of the Year.
“I am so honored to be lifted up by so many strong women from our community. Throughout my lifetime, there have been so many women mentors that have helped me achieve my dreams, And I am just so happy to be a part of this big female choreographer movement. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
