(38) Jessica Wallis, Ballet In The City

Posted by on 03.20.2017

This week we are pleased to welcome Jessica Wallis, Ballet in the City founder.  If you are a regular listener, you have heard us talk about Ballet in the City in the past as they have been one of our sponsors from the very beginning.  We were so happy to sit down with Jessica in Miami a few weeks ago to hear more about how her organization come about.  Jessica studied ballet through highschool until an injury ended her dreams of becoming a professional dancer.  After attending college and becoming a school teacher, she realized she needed something more.  So she quit her job and created Ballet in Cleveland, an organization designed to present ballet in her home town, an area starved for classical ballet after the closing of San Jose Cleveland Ballet.  As her project grew, she decided to create Ballet in the City and implement this model in other locations across the country.  This Sunday she is presenting us for a live Conversations on Dance master class and the recording of a live podcast in Columbus Ohio.  If you are in the area, come dance with us!  Register now at balletinthecity.org/programs-and-events.html.
