"If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking ..."


Ballet Mobile is a charitable performing arts organization,

always on the road making house calls.

Ballet Mobile's mission is best reflected through Emily Dickinson's poem.

 

"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain."

Everyone in Ballet Mobile is a volunteer,
hoping to "ease one life the aching" ...

Ballet Mobile: On-the-Road

Ballet Mobile's "M&Ms" are

Music, Movement, and guided Meditation.

Our interactive, healing experiences improve everyone's well-being.

We take really good ballet out of a dark theater and share it with people

who otherwise might not be able to experience it.


No matter what kind of chair they're sitting in,

Ballet Mobile audiences dance with handmade silk flower bouquets gifted to them during the experience.

Everyone has the chance to move, retrieve cherished memories, regain inspiration, watch wonderful artistry, and dance with their flowers and hearts.

Long after the experience, these handmade bouquets remind them of joy.

"I never thought I'd get a Valentine today. You gave me a beautiful bouquet and so much more. You gave me back myself."
"Life has been so difficult lately. Today you gave me back a piece of my soul."
"You made me feel young again and reminded me of how my nanny used to tell me that even when your Life is tough, it is still yours to LIVE."
Ballet Mobile Artists Alison Wall, Jayla Allums, Jasmine Glaze, Maddie Welsh, Abby Kallmyer, Erica Farrell, and Brooke Powell, as well as Choreographer Angela Walker, dance with and join us when their schedules permit.

Over 8 years, the Weinberg Program has proved that Ballet improves seniors' memory, balance, mood, coordination, concentration, agility, and patience.

Ballet Mobile is all about them, not us.
We are together through the music - wherever you are.
Dance with us,
no matter what kind of chair you're sitting in.
