Nashville Ballet strives to promote dance as an essential and inspiring element of our community with wide-reaching and innovative educational dance programming for schools, businesses and community groups throughout Middle Tennessee.

Through public and private funding, the Community Engagement initiative of Nashville Ballet strives to expose children, teens and adults to the artistry, beauty and athleticism of dance by providing unique dance experiences that cultivate an interest in the art form of ballet.

Each of our school curriculum-based programs meet many of the developmental and academic standards set forth by the state of Tennessee and Metropolitan Nashville Public School (MNPS) system and is designed to appeal to the various learning styles and needs of all ages.

Program Title: 72 STEPS

Program Type: Arts Integration

Program Description:

Commissioned by the League of Women Voters of Nashville and their Perfect 36 Supporters, Gina Patterson’s 72 Steps takes an empowering and celebratory look at the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the vital role Tennessee played in it. Patterson’s work transports classrooms and audiences to the early 1900s as camps in favor and opposition of suffrage frantically battle for support in the days leading up to the Tennessee legislature’s history making vote. Depicting a fight that began with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 and spanned over 72 years, this ballet transcends time in a rallying call to action designed to create dialogue surrounding the past and modern-day barriers to a unified and equitable society.
