The Cleveland Ballet Alumni Group seeks to cultivate a space for all alumni of Cleveland Ballet to reconnect as we bridge together the past, the present, and the future of Cleveland Ballet. We are bringing together current and former dancers spanning all generations of Cleveland Ballet’s history and joining together as ambassadors for the present and future of Cleveland Ballet.

Please join us and stay connected as we weave both tradition and innovation into the fabric of the Cleveland dance community. Follow along on Instagram at @clevelandballetalumni and on Facebook at Cleveland Ballet Alumni. For all inquiries and to get involved, email
