Impacting People’s Lives through the Transformative Power of Dance

Miami City Ballet’s mission is excellence and inclusion across three pillars: The Company, The School, and Community Engagement.

At the heart of everything Miami City Ballet does is the belief that classical ballet should be accessible for all.

Our Community Engagement programs eliminate barriers to access to the arts by bringing high caliber dance education and performance opportunities directly into local communities, schools, and social service centers. We provide access and scholarship support to the Miami City Ballet School for talented children across the Miami-Dade County Public School system that show a promise and interest for dance.

We serve approximately 12,000 individuals annually through seven distinct community programs: Ballet Bus, Explore Dance, STEAM+, Palm Beach Summer Dance Camp, Ballet for Young People, Touch Tours, and MCB Pop-Up Performances.
