Ballet West cultivates future artists and inspires people of all backgrounds. Ballet West's educational programs are specifically designed to educate teachers and students of all ages and introduce them to the art of ballet and dance. These educational programs are vital and intrinsic to sustaining the creative capital of our community, and sustaining Ballet West as an arts institution. Programs are designed to be comprehensive, educational and to serve the entire state, while the focus is dedicated to portraying the individual artist’s creative impact on students in formats that encourage one-on-one expression and contact.

The Ballet West Educational and Outreach program comprises four main components: I CAN DO, Ballet West for Children, In-Theatre Performances, and First Look. Annually, they impact over 20 districts, 320 schools, and 100,000 students and teachers, including home schools and special needs groups.

Ballet West Educational and Outreach programs are supported by generous contributions from public minded corporations, individuals, foundations, government agencies, and by a broad base of community support.
