Education & Outreach is a Vital Component of Nevada Ballet Theatre
About Nevada Ballet Theatre's Future Dance
Nevada Ballet Theatre has been a leader in arts education since 1980. Future Dance, its recognized and successful outreach program, was established in 1993 and currently serves thousands of students a year through its initiatives. By offering free in-school dance instruction and the opportunity to earn scholarships, Future Dance seeks to expose children from underserved communities to the art form of dance and provide dedicated students with a premiere arts education.
Through the language and movement of dance, Nevada Ballet Theatre's Future Dance Teaching Artists aid to empower our youth to use their bodies to communicate and express ideas. Through commitment and practice, students learn exercises to help build coordination, balance, flexibility, athleticism, strength, self-confidence, rhythm and spatial awareness. Our Teaching Artists provide students with knowledge in a variety of disciplines which are designed to demonstrate how dance corresponds to the many cultures of our society.
