Outreach Classes

Alberta Ballet is taking the magic of dance on the road and bringing its signature classes to more Albertans with a new pilot series of Alberta Ballet Outreach Classes. Our next offering for children aged 8-17 is in Grande Prairie on June 3 & June 4, 2023 in partnership with The Academy at Alexander Forbes School.

This program is designed to increase accessibility for youth who face barriers that may prevent them from accessing recreation or arts activities. Youth will be introduced to the basics of ballet; nurture their self-expression; connect with new friends; develop poise and teamwork; increase their confidence and find a sense of belonging in a safe, fun and welcoming space. 

Classes are provided at no cost to participants, no experience is necessary, and no uniform is required. Programs are hosted in community centres, giving families the flexibility to access classes right in their neighbourhoods. Please note: registration is required.

About Outreach Classes

In this complimentary two-day Beginner Ballet Outreach Class, youth ages 8-17 are invited to explore ballet technique, music and the joy of movement–all in a relaxed, enjoyable and accessible environment for a beginner or experienced dancer.

Dance provides students the opportunity to make new friends, develop poise, musicality, and build confidence in a safe and nurturing environment. This program is also a great complement to students who participate in other activities or sports looking to enhance their posture, balance and flexibility.
