NEW! Inside the Ballet with Mitchell Korn
Join Mitchell Korn, Vanderbilt University Blair School of Music senior lecturer, for a four-part series that explores the behind the scenes of one of Nashville Ballet’s upcoming performances.

Participants will gain:
- Appreciation for the work of art

This all-new series is perfect for ballet beginners, or for those who want to build upon their dance education. The subject matter for each series will be based upon the current season’s offerings.
