The Ballet Project

Ballet Nouveau Academy of Dance’s BALLET PROJECT is committed to educating today’s youth in a complete training program that generates the accessibility of ballet to multi-cultural communities within Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. The Ballet Project partners directly with local community organizations for 4 to 6 week sessions to introduce the basics of ballet to today’s youth. A short demonstration is completed at the conclusion of the session and the families of our students are encouraged to attend and continue educating their youngsters through the arts. We strongly believe in the open-ended benefits of exposing children to the performing arts at a young age and the New York Center for Arts Education agrees! CONTACT US for more information on THE BALLET PROJECT or to schedule your four to six week session.
