Community and outreach

With a mission to enrich our community through dance education and performance, Portland Ballet reaches people of all background throughout Maine. If you or your organization are interested in partnering with PB, contact us today! Please have a look at our current programs below.

Educational Performances

The children gained a great appreciation of ballet as a performing art, and got to experience a stronger connection between their education and the world around them. This was an experience these first graders will never forget, as many were enthusiastic to try ballet in their future. Thank you for giving us this opportunity.
