Philadelphia Ballet’s High School Partnership Program offers a dance education program that provides in-depth dance engagement and instruction at the high school level.

Students from arts and/or dance major programs in Philadelphia-area high schools attend a series of performances, master classes, and lectures throughout the school year. Working with members of the artistic staff, costume department, lighting and stage design department, and administrative staff, students are exposed to the many elements that make a ballet company run and gain a broad understanding of career opportunities in the world of dance, both on stage and off.
