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.

Joy Womack

Joy Womack joined us on episode two of the Ballet Initiative podcast. I hope when things settle, she'll come back and tell her story. Listen to our interview with Ms. Womack here.

I believe that social media is a huge part of sustaining this great art form. This interview is proof. I met Joy Womack via Facebook. Once we connected, I requested an interview. She agreed and we connected via Skype while she was in Hong Kong. Yes, Hong Kong. She was competing in the 2013 Asian Grand Prix. Oh, and she won. Historically speaking. she's also the first American dancer to join the Bolshoi Ballet.
