Student Matinees


Louisville Ballet Student Matinee Performances

Join the Louisville Ballet for an educational experience at the theater! Educators and students have the opportunity to enjoy a live performance while getting a behind-the-scenes look at ballet and the performing arts. These performances are designed to give students an introduction to classical and contemporary ballet based on the company’s current repertoire.

All student matinees are one hour and include excerpts from the production performed by Louisville Ballet. In addition, educators receive a comprehensive Resource Pack before the performance to enhance the experience for students.
