New York City Ballet Wants to Hear What Ballet Means to You

January 23, 2018

Why do you love ballet? Does it help you escape? Provide a creative release? Give you an eloquent way to speak with your body? Push you to strive for perfection every day? (All of the above?)

New York City Ballet just launched a new campaign, With Ballet, that asks ballet dancers and fans to talk about what ballet means to them. It’s a lovely idea, and it comes with an easy-to-use website that makes sharing your ballet story super simple.

Visit to create an Insta-ready image, and then tell the world about your personal ballet journey, using the hashtag #withballet. Not sure where to start? Let NYCB principal Lauren Lovette’s video inspire you:
