Proud to BE BOLD
BE BOLD’s Inspired Teaching Artists and Musicians
This year, we welcomed twelve exceptional teaching artists and seven gifted musicians into our BE BOLDcommunity. They infuse every class with energy, creativity, and expertise. Our teaching artists and musicians participate in training and professional development workshops to learn the BE BOLD framework, which focuses on ballet skills, social-emotional learning, and the diverse history of ballet.
We express our gratitude to our dedicated teaching artists and musicians who play a crucial role in helping children engage their bodies, hearts, and minds in learning through ballet.
Mark your calendars for July 25-29 as Lincoln Center hosts the highly anticipated BAAND Together Dance Festival, which includes some of MCF’s partners. This extraordinary event will unite New York City’s iconic dance companies, Ballet Hispánico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem (BAAND)—all on one stage. In addition to the captivating performances, the companies will offer educational workshops each afternoon, welcoming dancers of all ages to participate in an enriching learning experience. Don’t miss this incredible talent showcase and the opportunity to engage with the vibrant dance community in NYC.
