Providing incredible experiences
Princesses Ballet is a non-profit organization run by the City Gospel Mission in Cincinnati. The program offers free ballet lessons to underprivileged girls from ages 3 to 18 with a dream of making ballet accessible to everyone, no matter their background. It started in 2003, with just eight girls, and has grown to serve over 500 girls across 21 sites in Greater Cincinnati, Ohio. On their own words: “The program has a mentoring approach and a focus toward success for each girl, so we really focus on the whole self, building character, self-esteem, discipline and of course a love of dance.”
Só Dança have not met or know of many companies that devote so much to young ladies, not only from a ballet perspective but as people. Princesses Ballet helps these ladies to understand their self-worth and encourage them to thrive no matter their circumstances. This organization is making a difference impacting their community and Só Dança stepped in to support them to keep on being life changers for the people they serve.
Each year, Princesses Ballet runs a large-scale fundraising event that goes toward the important work it does. Só Dança sponsored the 2019 event sending 2 professional dancers Jim Nowakowski and Caitlin Valentine-Ellis as performing guest artists. Só Dança is also donating 120 complete outfit for 120 girls: ballet shoes, leotards, tights.
