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 and growing. 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.

We are an educational and charitable performing arts company. We are a Howard County Arts Council Resident Arts Organization at the Howard County Center for the Arts. 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.
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.
