Brooklyn Ballet


Product Description

At the heart of Brooklyn Ballet’s mission is the creation of new ballets that challenge conventions and defy expectations.

Our repertory, guided by Artistic Director Lynn Parkerson, reflects a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural approach to ballet, and our dances are created through collaborations with musicians, writers, designers, hackers, visual artists and our Brooklyn neighbors. Opening our ballets to interdisciplinary influences helps us extend the form in unique directions, even while rooted in the classical idiom.

Our community outreach programs are mutually enriching and inform the direction of our artistic work. The Company’s ongoing exposure to street dancing and non-traditional performance settings transforms how we perform our classical dance work. The incorporation of improvisational structures and unorthodox musical scores adds rich, enticing layers to the company’s expressive range.

Ms. Parkerson’s core aesthetic includes a juxtaposition of styles, cultures and dance forms. Reaching across cultural and class divides is in the very DNA of the Company, informing each ballet’s tone and composition as well as our education and community programs. The merging of all components—performance, education, artistic excellence and community outreach—is underlined by this idea of “bridging” divides. And that is Brooklyn Ballet’s signature.

Brooklyn Ballet School is a classical ballet conservatory and a community dance center. Our world-class faculty teaches high-quality technique classes to dance students of all ages and provides a positive and nurturing experience for every student. From Pre-ballet to Conservatory Ballet, with additional classes in Adult Ballet, Jazz, and Modern dance, Brooklyn Ballet School accommodates students on recreational, advanced and professional tracks.

Brooklyn Ballet values inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) for ALL. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to receive the best dance education, regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic background. As dance educators, we know that our students and their families look to us as role models in our studio and in our community. Therefore, our decisions, demeanor, and words matter. This scholastic year, we’re committed to educating our faculty and staff on best practices, as well as implementing changes to improve our awareness and sensitivity to I. D. E. A. We look forward to partnering with our students and their families to create a community of openness, acceptance, togetherness, and love. Brooklyn Ballet School has always been where Brooklyn comes to dance. We’re proud to continue that legacy and are dedicated to becoming a true representation of the uniquely diverse population of Brooklyn.
