Led by directors and master teachers from professional ballet schools (Boston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theater), provide pedagogical support to small studio owners and teachers focusing on teaching methodologies and curriculum structures that will strengthen students’ technique while better aligning with pre-professional programs. Technical and administrative impediments inherent in small programs will be examined. Participants will garner the valuable information needed to prepare their students for top level pre- professional programs while establishing relationships with those organizations.
In a brainstorming session we investigate ways the Black dance communities can better interface with larger ballet organizations’ DEI initiatives to create equitable and supportive partnerships toward school and business growth.
After Attending MoBBallet Symposium educators will continue to have access MoBBallet’s extensive network of Ballet organizations, directors, teachers, and professional dancers. Should they need support or council, MoBBallet will be able to connect them with a subject matter expert or mentor best suited to their needs.
