Community Engagement & Education
Miami City Ballet’s community engagement programs enrich and strengthen the mission of the company while building strong community relationships, broadening the audience base and exposing new audiences to the world of ballet. Long-term studies by the National Endowment for the Arts have demonstrated that arts education plays a vital role in enhancing academic achievement, improving self-esteem, and increasing the probability of high school graduation.
We engage schools and community organizations in long-term relationships to maximize the benefits of arts education through classes, lecture-demonstrations, performances, and experiential workshops. As a cultural anchor in South Florida, it is our responsibility to partner with communities to inspire youth and people of all ages and backgrounds.
