Pennsylvania Ballet

Free dress rehearsal matinees are offered to student groups throughout the year, and groups can book a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of the ballet’s studio, which includes a presentation by a member of the troupe, the opportunity to watch a live rehearsal, and even a professional-style ballet class. Established in 1963, Pennsylvania Ballet is a premier ballet company in the US. The Happy Feet! program brings pre-school groups into all the ballet fun, introducing them to the art form. The Accent on Dance programs bring dance education to school groups with multidisciplinary activities. The Ballet provides student workbooks and supplementary learning materials for teachers.
