WELCOME

to Maryland's Bookmobile of Ballet!

We serve and honor the people of Maryland.

WE ARE THE BOOKMOBILE OF BALLET 

 

Just as a bookmobile brings books to people everywhere, Ballet Mobile brings beautiful ballet to unconventional locations. We combine movement, music, and mental imagery in ways that touch the heart and lift the spirits. We transform living rooms, hallways, atriums, and even kitchens into beautiful, interactive ballet experiences.

We are an educational and charitable performing arts company, and we are honored to serve our Community. We are proud of our Educational Division, Atelier de Ballet Classique!

 

If you would like to learn more about us or schedule a house call, write info@balletmobile.org, or call us at 410-382-1377. We bring healing magic with us and leave it with you and those you love most. 

 

 

 
HOUSE CALLS, NOT CURTAIN CALLS 
 
Ballet Mobile's theatre is wherever we dance, and we make house calls, not curtain calls. You can best understand what we do by reading what people have said about us. Here are some recent comments. Our Community page has more.
