To support scholarship opportunities for underserved, at-risk students to access comprehensive, long-term ballet training opportunities at the dance school.

Organization Background

For 65 years our mission has been:

... to provide opportunities for minority youth to experience quality dance education, regardless of means and to offer intensive training for those with career potential

... to nurture and develop leadership qualities and self-determination through exposure to the discipline of dance training and the inherent challenge to achieve excellence

... to nurture and develop cross-cultural understanding through ongoing interaction with children from diverse ethnic and social-economic backgrounds

The School of the Garden State Ballet continues to provide quality dance training for minority youngsters in the city of Newark, by assembling a highly trained, dedicated faculty that continues to believe that their commitment to these youngsters makes a difference.

For sixty-five years, the School of the Garden State Ballet has provided its students with an atmosphere of safety where discipline, respect and cooperation abound. In this atmosphere youngsters who may enter unfocused, troubled or scared find their way and their inner voice. This discovery follows and guides them outside the school's doors and throughout their lives.
