The mission of Eglevsky ballet is to enrich the lives of its students and the community through the art and discipline of classical ballet.  by preserving the rich history of our founding director, maintaining a professional company and school, Eglevsky ballet will bring a more profound performance experience to the cultural life of our region and beyond.  securing a place in the arts education of not only our students, but the education of those in undeserved or in-crisis surroundings, we broaden the base of service for our art, thereby making it more accessible.  Eglevsky ballet desires to create an environment where students can thrive allowing for further development beyond the classroom.  additionally, our unparalleled professional faculty will be able to teach in an environment that is conducive to the rigors and demands of classical ballet.  professional dancers, regisseurs, educators, and choreographers are also encouraged and challenged to breathe life into new and existing repertoire.
