Engagement Philosophy

Silicon Valley Ballet changes young lives and opens the door to creativity learning for kids by introducing a local school students to the joy of music, movement and dance in their classroom, in the ballet studios or at the theater.

Our programs bring the powerful, life-changing beauty of dance and music to under-represented students in San Jose and Silicon Valley, helping young people find their voices, creativity and self-confidence.

No matter what language is spoken in the home, learning the universal language of dance and music helps kids find their voices, expanding their horizons for a successful life.

In the 2014 - 2015 season Silicon Valley Ballet engagement programs provided over 10,000 touchpoints for kids, students and their families.

Silicon Valley Ballet invites you to help us give kids the experiences that will help them succeed, in life, at work and as a contributor to the future of Silicon Valley.  Your generous investment will allows the ballet to help local kids and their families experience world-class dance and music, changing lives for good.
