Thanks to our friends at the Cincinnati Ballet, MVK has filled the Aronoff Center for the past two years with deserving kids who have never experienced the magic of the ballet.  

In partnership with the Cincinnati Ballet, MVK is responsible for providing at-risk kids with their first opportunity to attend the ballet.  The first community performance in 2013 was Swan Lake, followed in 2014 with Peter Pan.  At each performance, the Aronoff Center was filled to the rafters with smiling kids, enjoying their first experience at the ballet.  More than 1,500 deserving kids and their families attended each of the performances.  It is an incredible sight to behold and a life-changing, culturally-enriching experience for many of the kids and parents.

Exciting news for our 2015 Community Performance, stay tuned for more information!
