MBC Community Work

Community Involvement

Mankato Ballet Company seeks to bring awareness of the art of dance to the community of Southern Minnesota and surrounding regions. We do this in many ways:

  • Work with My Place to bring the art of dance to the children involved
  • Work with preschools in to introduce dance at a young age
  • Donate over 100 hours of volunteer time to the Holiday Lights and Mankato Kiwanis
  • Assist Animals Shelters like BENCHES in animal adoptions
  • Work with local groups like the Girl Scouts to bring large groups into our performances to expose them to the art of dance.
  • Go into elementary and middle schools for mini concerts
  • Send college bound dancers into the High School career days to talk about dance as a career
  • Participate in local fundraisers and community events like the Saint Peter Fun Run, or Monster Dash
  • Perform throughout the community in Assisted Living and Retirement Facilities
