Ballet des Amériques - Mission of the organization as a whole
Established in 2011 , Ballet des Amériques operates both a professional dance company and a pre-professional ballet conservatory with the dual mission of developing and attracting audiences locally, regionally, nationally and internationally with world-class dance performances featuring original choreographies by awarded director Carole Alexis and of training and educating students to the level of professional dancers who are able, upon graduation, to pursue dance careers with the world’s greatest companies.
The artistic and educational concept of Ballet des Amériques is to develop the tradition of classical dance for the world of the 21st century - for a globalized world of interacting cultures - with the particular aim of developing inclusive cultural communities. To this end, Ballet des Amériques tours schools, libraries and community centers with its “Ballet is Not Pink” campaign of performances and presentations and invites the public to its annual season of performances in various theaters including the historic Music Hall in Tarrytown, where it is the resident dance company.
Ballet des Amériques is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. Your generous contribution will help us fulfill our mission through our performance, training and outreach programs.
Ballet des Amériques is a member of the International Dance Council - Conseil International de la Danse - UNESCO
