Presented across Ontario in partnership with
Ballet 101s are designed especially for children and youth and introduce the audience to dance through a combination of performance and participation. The program provides opportunities to see high-quality professional dance presentations while learning about ballet as a storytelling medium. The interactive component teaches basic dance positions and allows participants to discover their own ability to convey emotions through movement.
Ballet 101s serve as an introduction to the performing arts while also educating the public about the history of dance. The Company recently launched an initiative to take the Ballet 101 program into every region of Ontario over three years, with an estimated reach of 48,000 Ontarians.
