Take your kids to the ballet.

Oglebay Institute’s children’s theater brings classic stories from the page to the stage through theater and dance. Ballet performances feature well-loved stories that children relate to. Kids not only get excited about the characters and music they know, but also get to see stories presented in new and interesting ways.  Performances introduce kids to the beauty of dance. They also learn how dance can be used as a means of self-expression and storytelling.

Teaching the Art of Dance…

Oglebay Institute recognizes the importance of creative expression through movement and music. Dance has been a vibrant part of our programming for more than 80 years. We not only present dance as an art form and a means of self-expression but also as social interaction for all ages. From new dancers to returning professionals, our students immerse themselves in the art of dance at Oglebay Institute.
