Making House Calls, Not Curtain Calls, for 14 years

"I am a writer. To me, the narration today was a poem. It joined the dance and the music, and together, they made a dance of their own. I will remember this dance for the rest of my life."

"I can't remember the last time my wife has really spoken. Look at her now. You brought her back to Life, to me."

"What a remarkable integration of dance, music, and narration ..."

"You've inspired me. Such passion in your soul! Such meaningful dancing!"

"When I'm in Heaven, I will have beautiful Ballet dancers all around me.

I will dance with them, and it will be like today."

Making Ballet Participative
Ballet Mobile audiences dance with Ballet Mobile from whatever kind of chairs they sit in, conducting some of the most magnificent music in the world with the silk flower bouquets Ballet Mobile brings them all as gifts.
"What's really powerful about what you do is that it brings people together as a group, as a community, into the music and into the dancing."
