CityDance Outreach Education Program

Each component of Texas Ballet Theater's Community Enrichment is designed to fill the void for children and youth who would otherwise lack access to the arts.

CityDance's qualified ballet instructors offer a free five-week series of introductory ballet classes.

CityDance reaches over 1,000 students annually and is a recognized partner of the Fort Worth and Dallas Independent School Districts. Through exposure to the fundamentals of ballet, CityDance students learn movement, French terminology, and classical music education.
