Marin Ballet has transitioned to a full offering of in-studio classes with consistent safety protocols.

Enrollment is Ongoing All Year Round!

Marin Ballet provides a standards-based dance education that equips students with the tools and vocabulary to perform at their best.  Collaborations with guest choreographers, both a ballet and contemporary syllabus, and an emerging (student) choreography initiative inform a year-round training program.

Culture & Community

MB is committed to supporting teachers and schools engage students in the school day with what we call Arts-in-Action Learning.  This free program targets grades K-8 WITH cross-cultural dance and music experiences. Students explore movement vocabularies, choreograph with peers, and enjoy movement-based games designed to integrate with math, science, history, and language arts.  All delivered with mindful respect for safety protocols at each school site and with our staff masked and ready for action!
