We call on artistic directors, executive directors, dancers, choreographers and other members of the international dance and ballet community to support Ballet Has Decided.
Ballet Has Decided supports an important series of ballet and educational initiatives in West Africa that seek to engage and inspire disadvantaged young girls and teach them the important life skills that will create opportunities for a better future.
Using ballet, dance and the performing arts, our mission is to help these young disadvantaged and underprivileged girls to expand their horizons, explore their creativity and build the friendships, confidence and self esteem to live a better life.
Join with us! Our responsibility as privileged human beings is to pay back for the opportunities we’ve received. It is time to instigate the changes that will bring about positive transformations in women’s lives across Africa.
