New Ballet students are mission driven, building leadership skills while rigorously training. Pictured are Dunbar Elementary students dancing in the same room of their school with London Bruce, teaching artist. They are emulating the poses of students who went to their school and are now New Ballet staff members. We’re grateful for the continued engagement in Orange Mound that brings talents full circle, fostering the next generation of leaders.
