School Performances

Through our education outreach program “Discover Dance” we offer live, fully-staged performances of classical ballets to elementary, middle and high school students throughout the Gulf Coast region.

Along with the Mobile Ballet Corps de Ballet, performances include guest artists from New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and other world-renowned companies in the principal roles.  Student audiences not only enjoy an excellent cultural event, they also are privileged to watch some of the world’s finest dancers perform right in their own community.

We believe that exposure to the arts is a vital part of every child’s education. With drastic cuts in education funding, the arts often are the first to be eliminated from the curriculum. Discover Dance helps bridge that gap, bringing classical ballet to those who otherwise might not be able to experience it.

Mobile Ballet’s Discover Dance program is funded in part by the Mobile County Commission, Alabama’s Support the Arts License Tag Fund, Mobile Arts Council’s Community Arts Grant, The J.L. Bedsole Foundation, The Cunningham Family Charitable Foundation, The Caring Foundation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, The Crampton Trust, and The Hargrove Foundation. We are grateful to these and other donors for their generous support.
