Ballet For Young People

Ballet for Young People offers free and low-cost performances and educational supplements to family and school audiences performed by Miami City Ballet School pre-professional students or the company dancers.

Programming is designed especially for family audiences, and is performed by MCB School Ensemble or Company dancers. Enhancing the experience are interactive talks by the Artistic Director, members of the artistic team or the MCB School Director, providing the audience with insight into the performance. Each participant leaves with an educational program guide, including child-friendly activities and exercises related to the history of ballet, the ballet performed and the exciting world of dance, to which many are introduced for the first time. A special pre-performance teacher’s guide is offered on our website.


The MCB School Ensemble is composed of the top-level students in the Pre-Professional Division of MCB School. They perform in MCB’s signature education and outreach program, Ballet for Young People, as well as in other special events and public performances throughout South Florida. Each season’s programming includes a diverse repertoire — from Petipa to Balanchine — encompassing both classical and contemporary works. By increasing community access to high-quality artistic programming, they truly serve as ambassadors for MCB and MCB School.
