About The Georgia Ballet
Founded in 1960 by Marietta native Iris Hensley, The Georgia Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to inspiring the public through professional ballet performance, unparalleled dance training and meaningful community outreach. We are continuously growing to meet the needs of the community while fulfilling our reputation as an outstanding arts organization.
Momentum is an outreach program which gives students in Title I schools the opportunity to learn the basics of dance training. In this special residency program, students take weekly classes that focus on musicality, rhythm, quality of movement, and basic dance terminology. In addition, the Momentum Program provides an opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge about dance and culminates with a performance from The Georgia Ballet's Professional Company. All programs meet Georgia Quality Core Curriculum Standards, and study guides are provided to enhance the experience of each program.
