Dance for EveryBODY

Louisville Ballet provides community engagement programming through a wide range of in-school residencies, performance assemblies, after-school workshops, student matinees, adaptive dance programs, audience engagement initiatives, scholarship opportunities and virtual programming.

Louisville Ballet is committed to serving our community and providing access to the art of ballet. Through our myriad of programs and initiatives, we share the artistry of ballet with over 20,000 people in our community on an annual basis.

Residencies and Workshops

Louisville Ballet offers a variety of residencies and workshops to help support arts education for schools and community partners. 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 movement programs is based on the National Core Arts Standards in Dance and provide a high quality arts education for students and teachers.
