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.

BALLET BOUND AUDITION TOUR
In the summer of 2021, Louisville Ballet hosted a Ballet Bound Audition Tour in partnership with Olmsted Parks. Dance workshops were hosted at six different park locations for the opportunity to audition for a Ballet Bound Scholarship to Louisville Ballet for the 2021-22 school year. We are excited to announce 20 students in total have been chosen from all park workshop attendees and will receive free tuition and uniform for one year to attend weekly classes at Louisville Ballet’s Downtown Studio Campus.
We look forward to our second tour of Audition Workshops coming to a park near you next summer. Be sure to follow Louisville Ballet for more details about the tour, announced in Spring of 2022!
