Ballet Course

Fee: $550

Ages 13 and up

Our Ballet Course differs from other intensives in that it provides advanced and high intermediate to pre-professional students unprecedented, and unlimited access to personal coaching and feedback from Black professionals in the field both inside and outside of the studio. Teachers and professional dancers will act as mentors in the areas of dance training, physical therapy, body image, performance and auditioning techniques, etc. Participants and faculty will come together to learn about the history of Blacks in Ballet as well as in an intimate sharing duringĀ  the Town Hall meeting. After attending MoBBallet Symposium, participants and their families will continue to have access MoBBallet's extensive network of Ballet organizations, directors, teachers, and professional dancers. Should dancers or their families need support or council, MoBBallet will be able to connect them with a subject matter expert or mentor best suited to their needs.

It takes a village to make a dancer, MoBBallet is that village!
