Community Outreach & Education
MCB’s Share The Dance community outreach and educational 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 Miami City Ballet School classes, lecture-demonstration performances, experimental workshops and the Ballet Bus scholarship program, where students experience first-hand the creative powers of classical music and dance and are provided with the unique opportunity to develop their own creative voices. As a cultural anchor in South Florida, it is our responsibility to reach deep into our community to touch young lives and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds.
