Dancing at Non-Traditional Venues

Teaching Seniors Ballet to Improve Memory, Well-Being, and Health

WE MAKE HOUSE CALLS,
NOT CURTAIN CALLS


WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
 
Ballet Mobile's theater is wherever we dance, and we make house calls, not curtain calls. No matter how small and non-traditional the space may be, we make it work. Our audiences say it best. Our Community page has more.
 
March 20, 2017 - Pickersgill - First Day of Spring Ballet
"What you bring to us is more than dancing. It is a touch of culture, a touch of beauty." "Susan went into the music and became what all of us dream about from when we were six years old." "You helped me find the music in my heart." "This moved me beyond words. I close my eyes and see it all." "You bring life to us when you are here."

"This was eye-opening." "This ballet class means so much to my mother, and I can't believe all she is able to do!" "I came here to be nice. I'm leaving here filled with awe at what I experienced."

"The Prayer for Peace really touched my heart. We all needed that." "This experience touched me. Here I am - a "Big Man" crying." "You don't know the power you all have." "I will stay alive so that I can see you all again."

January 7, 2017 - Morningside House of Friendship - New Year's Nutcracker
"I haven't been well and I wasn't going to leave my room today. This morning God told me to come down to watch you. I'm so glad that I did. I feel so much better now." "I wouldn't have missed this for the world." "So inspiring!" "What you all do for us takes my breath away."

We bring joy, love, music, and beauty
to people wherever they live,
helping them "feel young again".

REALLY GOOD, REAL 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 bring up-close-and-personal experiences with pointe shoes, ports de bras, and tutus...
Feel the energy and community of our house calls. Everyone dances! 

EXPERIENCE THE TRANSFORMATION

 

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.
