Ballet at the Barre is an adventurous new partnership of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and Cincinnati Ballet. Merging our Library’s vision to connect people to the world of ideas and information with the Ballet’s belief that collaboration ignites new possibilities, we plan to explore Cincinnati Ballet’s rehearsal space in a historic building in Cincinnati’s urban Over-The-Rhine neighborhood.

Ballet at the Barre kicks off on Sept. 30, when guests view a rehearsal of the Ballet in preparation of their upcoming performance Lady of the Camellias. After viewing rehearsal, we discuss the book The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan while enjoying refreshments. We plan to continue our partnership with future events to include rehearsal viewings, book discussions—and especially alluring—we will feature speakers from the artistic staff of the Ballet to explore the artistry of the Ballet.

Future speakers could be the Artistic Director, the Music Director, Costume Designer, Lighting Designer, and the performers themselves. This new partnership celebrates Cincinnati Ballet’s vision to inspire hope and joy in our community and beyond through the power and passion of dance.
