Participating Schools

Participating schools for the 2023/24 school year are ALBA Elementary School, Allen-Field Elementary School, and Milwaukee Parkside School for the Arts.

Continuing Dance Education

Students participate in the year-long ballet training program with weekly classes, showcasing their growth at an end-of-year performance share at their school. Students receive their own pair of ballet shoes as part of the program. Once students graduate from 5th grade, they are eligible to receive a scholarship to attend classes through Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy for as long as they would like to dance.

 Relevé is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.
