Metropolitan Ballet Theatre believes in taking the arts into the community through free community outreach performances, workshops and classes at local schools, senior residential facilities and at community events. In addition to several outreach activities per year, we also provide free tickets to The Nutcracker and our Spring Performance to underserved or at-risk members of our community through other community organizations such as Family Services, Inc. or local Title 1 schools.

We also offer a comprehensive outreach program to Girl Scouts, offering post-performance “Patch Chats” with our dancers and various workshops. In and out of the studio, we also offer an adaptive ballet program for students with special needs.

MBT encourages the development of future generations of artists and maintains, through its outreach program, open access to dance education and enjoyment.

Through volunteer performances, collaborations with other arts organizations, ticket donations, and community philanthropy efforts, MBT instills a sense of civic responsibility in its dancers while making the arts more accessible to thousands more local school children, underserved families and seniors annually.
