Dance For All

Our Department of Education and Community Initiatives (ECI) works with our community to make ballet accessible and relevant to everyone.

Our vision

Our vision is to cultivate and educate a new generation of lifelong arts advocates and participants through our commitment to education, collaboration, inclusion and innovation.

Our impact

Each year, we work with more than 3,000 individuals in Boston and our surrounding communities to cultivate a love of dance and the arts through our education programs, community events, workshops, and performances.

Our programs

All of our programs and initiatives include individuals with multiple learning styles and abilities. We promote movement exploration in a safe, supportive environment and encourage social and emotional growth.

Our highly-qualified faculty members have extensive backgrounds in teaching and dance education.  Our curriculum integrates the arts with core academic learning standards and incorporates multiple styles of dance that reflect our diverse community
