The mission of Ballet Ambassadors is to give children and teens in schools, afterschool programs, and homeless shelters the chance to share the stage with professional dancers in costumed adaptations of the ballet classics, original ballets, and world dance productions.

We are grateful for generous support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Materials for the Arts, the New York City Department of Education, Suffolk County BOCES, PN/W BOCES, and individual donors.

Ballet Ambassadors under the direction of Sondra Forsyth was privileged to serve the five boroughs of New York City as well as schools in Suffolk and Putnam/Northern Westchester counties from 2001 to 2013.
