Dance for every body.

Louisville Ballet provides community engagement opportunities through a range of in-school programs, student matinees and adult programs. Through our outreach efforts, we’ve shared the artistry of ballet with over 20,000 people throughout our community on an annual basis.

With such a wide variety of programming available, Louisville Ballet has dance for every body.

As an invested member of this community, we are working hard at Louisville Ballet to continue providing access to dance and ballet through on-line learning platforms during this unprecedented time.

Louisville Ballet is pleased to share these online learning resources to help support arts education while schools and businesses are closed and families are spending more time together. The items included will allow you to keep your family’s bodies and minds active, as well as help build family bonds during this challenging time of social distancing.

Student Matinees

Join 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.


“The students learned positive interactive social skills, while being exposed to movement and dance in a way that many of them have never experienced, and may never again. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

-Dr. Arivia Parks, Assistant Principal Whitney Young Elementary

In-School Programs

Louisville Ballet offers a variety of outreach programs that work with schools during the school day. As children are naturally kinesthetic learners, movement and dance is an excellent way of offering differentiated instruction to your students. The curriculum for all of our in-school programs is based on the National Core Arts Standards in Dance and provide a high quality arts education for students and teachers.


“The students at my school LOVED the ballet classes! The teachers learned about ways to integrate movement into their instruction and thoroughly enjoyed the activities as well!”

-Anonymous Teacher, Storytime Dance
