Student Matinee Performances


Looking for a unique educational experience? Join Louisville Ballet at a specially-designed student matinee! Educators and students have the opportunity to enjoy a live performance while getting a behind-the-scenes look at ballet and the performing arts. 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.
