As soon as COVID-19 struck, South Dakota Ballet quickly adapted & began developing a dance outreach program designed for adolescents & young adults. This program instills methods to cope with the physical & emotional impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This program uses ballet to teach the concepts of routine, resilience, self-expression & focus.
We anticipate to see participants leave our program experiencing a sense of confidence, self-assurance & the feeling that thye are capable of focusing in preparation for the start of the upcoming school year. We wish for this method to be available to young adults in the event that the COVID-19 pandemic strikes again & isoaltes the future of our world once again.
