DANCE CHANCE CLEVELAND
In 2015, School of Cleveland Ballet embarked on an exciting new journey; beginning a dance education outreach program with Warrensville Heights Schools. This program allows students the opportunity to experience ballet in a professional and fun environment. Students come to not only learn ballet but also learn self-discipline, respect, history and an appreciation of the arts. This experience is an outstanding and truly unique opportunity for the students.
BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF NORTHEAST OHIO
A 14-week after school residency program for youth ages 7-10. Students are offered weekly world class ballet instruction by professional staff and company dancers.
CLEVELAND BROWNS STAY IN THE GAME! NETWORK
A unique program in partnership with the Browns Foundation that prioritizes attendance by providing resources aimed at tackling chronic absenteeism. Students get to experience in-school performances by Cleveland Ballet as a reward for having good attendance and improving their grades. Additionally, Cleveland Ballet provides tickets to the company's productions.
BALLET TELLS A STORY
A literacy program for students K-12 that provides transportation services as needed, tickets and study guides to Cleveland Ballet’s performances at Playhouse Square. Grade specific study guides are tailored to fit each production and are aligned with the curriculum in the classroom, furthering engagement from performance to classroom learning. Study guides are written by volunteer, author and Ohio licensed educator Linda Wagner.
GIRL SCOUTS OF AMERICA
Cleveland Ballet and Girl Scout of America have worked closely for a number of years. Troops are given the opportunity to see one of the company's amazing ballets and get to stay after the show for a Q&A with the dancers and even take photos with our company members.
School of Cleveland Ballet is a proud partner of Cleveland Playhouse. In collaboration, we provide dance classes to several Cleveland Municipal School District.
