Louisville Ballet believes that children should have access to high quality dance education experiences regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, or socio-economic status. Ballet Bound is a new initiative of Louisville Ballet providing young dancers from all across Greater Louisville the opportunity to study classical ballet free of charge in a professional setting.
Ballet Bound is designed to build diversity in the world of ballet while serving as a pathway for dancers to The Louisville Ballet School, Louisville Ballet Studio Company and eventually a career with Louisville Ballet.

Louisville Ballet is coming to a park near you this summer! In partnership with Olmsted Parks Conservancy and the NoCo Arts District of Jeffersonville, IN, Louisville Ballet will host 8 outdoor audition workshops to identify dancers for the 2022-23 Ballet Bound Class.
