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. Our house call Schedule is dynamic. Learn more about us through our Gallery.
Last fall, Ballet Mobile launched a Ballet for Senior Wellness Program at Weinberg Village. Taking ballet classes to seniors in our community, our Program specializes in improving seniors' cognitive and physical abilities. Take a look! If you would like to start a program like this, contact us and we will help you.
If you would like to learn more about us or schedule a house call, write firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 410-382-1377. We bring healing magic with us and leave it with you and those you love most.
WE MAKE HOUSE CALLS,
NOT CURTAIN CALLS
Ballet Mobile's theater 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.
