This app will introduce aspiring Ballet dancers to topics in the humanities and allied arts using images, text and web resources. Start with the first conversation in the series, Classicism. Our curators have selected works that inspire young dancers and connect them to ideals that have held true for dance since Ancient Greece, the Renaissance, the Twentieth Century through today and into the future.

We designed this app to be educational in the best sense: an inviting portal to knowledge, prompting further explorations that feed your artistic spirit, and bring insight into art, history, and the ongoing evolution of classical ballet.

Topics now available include Classicism, Art, and Choreography.
Look for upcoming topic releases on, World Cultures and Design.

best conversations about ballet we’ve had

We used this app for our school after seeing it being used by students from SAB, Dance Theater of Harlem and the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. The information and links kept us busy, but best of all were the embedded ‘Socratic Questions’ that got everyone talking. It will become a tool we use in our curriculum. Students loved us. Nothing like it. Really useful.

Helpful and a good study tool

I study ballet and have really enjoyed using this app for it’s photos and links that allow me to find out more about a particular dancer or work of art. I also have a new found appreciation for classicism!

Ballet History lover ,

Very disappointed

I do not recommend this app. There is nothing I don't find in all my history ballet book. The only difference is, my ballet books show me captions and the credits. Do they expect me to find the photos online to get the information was it shows. Very little text, no voice over, no music, nothing.
