Community Engagement Mission

Intrinsic to The Washington Ballet’s mission to bring the joy and artistry of dance to the nation’s capital, our community engagement programs provide a variety of opportunities to connect children and adults of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to the art of dance.

Through live performances, audience enrichment programs, the highest caliber of dance training, and educational events, we aspire to spark and enhance a love for dance, celebrate our history and cultural diversity and enrich the lives of our community members.
