Dance and Diversity
North Pointe Ballet is committed to increasing diversity in ballet by providing opportunities for underrepresented communities in Lorain and Cuyahoga Counties to engage in ballet education, performance experiences, and patronage at the ballet.
In addition to its Dance & Diversity Scholarship which provides performance experience to young, local dancers of African American and Hispanic ethnicities, NPB is pleased to have partnerships with organizations that provide communities in Lorain and Cuyahoga Counties with ballet-based dance education programs and opportunities to attend North Pointe Ballet performances.
It is the hope of NPB to cultivate future dancers and new audience members that more accurately represent the communities in which the company serves.
