Ballet Initiative

 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.

Jock Soto

For me, Jock Soto was the best partner on the planet. He's a celebrated artist who has danced with several of New York City Ballet's prima ballerinas. Perhaps most notably, Heather Watts, Darci Kistler and Wendy Whelan. Jock teaches at the School of American Ballet, and joined me from his childhood home in New Mexico.
