New Bedford Ballet grants need-based scholarships to local children who wish to attend the school. The scholarship program allows children from financially challenged households who are interested in dance an opportunity to join the New Bedford Ballet program. An application is available in the office.

In addition, our outreach programs include ballet instruction to students in the New Bedford and Dartmouth elementary schools and in the New Bedford Head Start Program.


We have given scholarships to local students for summer programs such as:

  • Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet

  • Festival Ballet

  • Hartford Ballet

  • Joffrey Ballet

  • Princeton Ballet

  • San Francisco Ballet

  • Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts

  • Washington Ballet
