Ballet Pensacola

Discover Dance

Ballet Pensacola is committed to its mission of enhancing the cultural life of the community through quality dance education and excellent performances. One way that this is accomplished is through the Discover Dance outreach program. Each year, Ballet Pensacola transforms gymnasiums and cafeterias into in-school performance spaces in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The organization’s professional dancers demonstrate classical ballet, modern movement, and even hip hop. Throughout the show, Artistic Director Richard Steinert explains the works and makes connections with dance history and vocabulary.

Many of the people who will attend a Discover Dance performance will be introduced to dance and ballet for the first time. For some, it will break down preconceived notions, and for others, it will foster a love of dance and the arts that will grow and deepen over time.

For more information about how to sponsor a performance or how to book a performance for your school, contact Frank Giammaria, director of development and marketing, at 850.432.9546.
