 Ballet INITIATIVE is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise the profile of dance in the Saint Louis community through preservation, promotion and the presentation of affordable exposure and access to quality ballet. We teach students to dance, help them excel in dance and educate the public about ballet in an effort to help sustain the art form for generations to come. Ballet INITIATIVE strives to make the art of ballet accessible, understood, supported and enjoyed by our community.

Tess Reichlen: Part Two

In part two of my conversation with Ms. Reichlen, I wanted to give her more time to talk about her position on ballet in the media. Her October 2013 interview in the Wall Street Journal started a deeper conversation about the way ballet is presented and perceived in the mainstream. Plus, she shares her views on the art of ballet in the media. Including, Sarah Jessica Parker's new project with NYCB and her thoughts on Breaking Pointe.
