About

Ballet & Books aims to combine the important but sometimes laborious activity of learning to read with the fun, energetic, physically enriching, confidence forming and community building activity of dancing.

 

Ballet and Books purposely targets young students because research has shown that if students are behind in academics by third grade, they are likely to stay behind.

Ballet and Books began with a program solely for 6-9 year olds, targeting young readers. However, after additional funding was secured, a program began as well for 3-5 year old children.

Through dance, we build literacy skills and an excitement for reading.

Our Mission

We are a community based organization dedicated to strengthening the confidence and community of young children through dance while building literacy skills and excitement for reading. We pride ourselves on serving a diverse community of families and coming from diverse backgrounds ourselves.
