In addition to performances and collaborations, our education and outreach programs will provide inspiring opportunities for artistic exploration and expression across a broad spectrum of participants. We cherish opportunities to strengthen our community through partnerships, classes, and events that touch lives with contemporary ballet.
Diversity makes us stronger and more thoughtful artists, creators, presenters, and custodians of our art form. Discrimination and injustice are not tolerated in our workplace or in the artistic process of our work. Promoting a space for a multitude of diverse voices to create and engage with art, particularly in the field of ballet, is at the core of what we value. This includes all skin colors, ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities. We expect our community to hold us to these values and encourage open dialogue about how we can continue to listen, evolve, support, and engage with BIPOC and LGBTQ+ artists, audiences, and communities.
Our Commitment to Artists: We affirm our commitment to treat our artists with respect and integrity. We believe that a profession in the arts deserves an environment of creativity, encouragement, honesty, and authenticity. We encourage all who work with the company to embrace these values without fear of consequence or vulnerability. We believe that this ethos creates higher quality artistic output and performances.
