Pro-active steps that Orlando Ballet is taking to champion diversity include:

Diversity and equality are crucial to the arts because they sustain, refresh, replenish and release the true potential of our artistic talent – from every background. Orlando’s population’s diverse nature offers unique opportunities for artistic collaborations and a rich workforce.

Orlando Ballet has an established Hispanic Development Committee, Chaired by Lizette Valarino, that has been working to include the Hispanic Community at every level of our work. With the support of United Arts, Orlando Ballet put on a special free Orlando Ballet Social hosted by Proyecto Somos Orlando. Their clients, representing the Hispanic and LGBTQ communities, enjoyed a special performance and mingled with our Company Dancers and staff. Orlando Ballet also partnered with the Osceola Star to present a free Orlando Ballet Social for the Osceola Arts Community located in Kissimmee (Kissimmee has a population of 63,392 and 55% of the population speaks Spanish, compared to a Florida average of 20%, source: http://www.areavibes.com/kissimmee-fl/demographics/).

Orlando Ballet’s 2017/18 season’s finale includes a major new artistic collaboration between Orlando Ballet’s acclaimed Artistic Director, Robert Hill and the singer Sisaundra Lewis. Sisaundra Lewis is well known internationally, having risen to stardom and gaining global recognition after delivering show stopping, electrifying performances on NBC’s ‘The Voice!’ Lewis grew up in Lake Hamilton, Florida singing in her father’s church. She is of African American, Gullah and Nigerian descent. Orlando Ballet is planning an audience development marketing campaign during 2017/18 to promote this exciting new ballet, featuring Sisaundra Lewis, to Orlando and the wider Florida, African American communities.

 

Orlando Ballet’s mission is to entertain, educate and enrich the cultural growth throughout our community through the highest quality of dance. We can only achieve this if we make a commitment to promoting and embedding diversity which reflects the Central Florida population throughout our work and workforce.

Orlando Ballet strives to enrich the work we do by embracing a wide range of diverse influences and practices within our team. We believe this will help us address challenges and opportunities in audience development, public engagement, and leadership.
