Cincinnati Ballet’s resident instructors elucidate numerous dance styles in classes tailored to meet the needs of students of all skill levels. Hone fancy footwork into formidable technical abilities in modern and hip-hop classes, designed to increase stamina and prepare students for rumbles with square-dancing street gangs. The beats of pop and international music fuel the heart pounding Rhythm & Motion class, which conjures a cocktail of dance styles including jazz and African to drive students through a lively cardiovascular workout that tones the arms, legs, and abdominals. Adult ballet classes for pupils of any skill level zero in on tiptoe technique and pirouetting prowess. Teen ballet and modern-dance classes offer fledgling footsteppers an opportunity to develop their moves in a more effective way than playing Billy Elliot on a continuous loop while they sleep.
Founded in 1963 at a local YMCA, the Cincinnati Ballet grew into a major regional company by adhering to its mission to express the human experience through dance. Today, it continues upholding that vision by housing resident artists who entertain audiences with dance performances of both classic and original work. Beyond supporting local audiences and their right to clap, the Cincinnati Ballet also seeks to nurture artists through the Otto M. Budig Academy. There, a professional faculty trains aspiring performers at all skill levels. These training opportunities are supplemented by outreach programs such as CincyDance!, which provides free training and dance attire to children.
