| Resources and Education through Art for Community Harmony |
In support of the vision and mission of Ballet North Texas and North Texas Conservatory, we seek to provide Resources and Education through Art for Community Harmony. Our R.E.A.C.H. programs partner with local and national organizations to promote dance and music as a fundamental value of education and life.
With our Refugee R.E.A.C.H. we are partnered with Refugee Services of Texas to provide Creative Movement classes to their children and families as a source of healing and growth.
Empower R.E.A.C.H. and Adaptive R.E.A.C.H. are committed to serving all members of the community, including those with special needs and disabilities, and socially and economically challenged families. Our goal is to facilitate a safe, educational, and stimulating environment where individuals of all walks of life can benefit from structured classical dance and music instruction. We strive to maintain a healthy relationship between student and instructor and ensure the needs and growth of each student is being met through individualized class placement.
Programming is inclusive regardless of race, national origin, disability status, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or gender. We believe dance and music are vital in improving social and motor skills, cognitive growth, self-esteem, confidence, creativity, imagination, and stress relief. As a part of R.E.A.C.H., Ballet North Texas and NTC offer sensory friendly performances, scholarships for training, and other performance opportunities. We are fully committed to offering these classes to impact and change the lives of students in the North Texas area.
City R.E.A.C.H. functions to provide direct contact to our city via dance a music. Ballet North Texas is actively involved in supplying veterans and their families (via Vettix), Boys and Girls Clubs, and Refugee Services of Texas with free admission to any performances. BNT also holds school performances for socially and economically challenged school districts.
Hope R.E.A.C.H provides opportunities for children and families in hospitals with a positive experience to see and enjoy and beauty of ballet. We are proud to partner with Crafting for a Cure’s “Smiles for All” program to bring a ray of hope to these children and their families.
