The Dance Discovery program is built on the idea that ballet should be available to everyone. We send Dance Discovery instructors to schools and to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County for students to receive hands-on training. Through this program, we aim to remove barriers to entry and make the art of ballet accessible to every child.
Ballet is much more than fine art. Through ballet training, students will learn essential life skills including listening, observation, and responsibility. Ballet also provides students with an outlet for confident self-expression.
“The parents whose children participate in the Dance Discovery classes are more involved in their student’s life at school. They’re more willing to visit the school since they aren’t only coming to the school for disciplinary or other negative issues.”
