Cincinnati Ballet invites you to join Attitude, a group of young professionals dedicated to cultivating the next generation of ballet lovers through personal engagement in the unique athleticism and artistry of Cincinnati Ballet. Whether you’re a life-long lover of dance or new to the ballet family, we hope you’ll share your passion with us.

Governed by a newly formed board of individuals representing a diverse cross-section of Cincinnati’s professional and cultural community, Attitude aspires to make dance accessible and fun to both the cautiously curious and the die-hard fan. Through a series of hosted, free events, members have the opportunity to mix and mingle with the artists of Cincinnati Ballet and purchase discounted tickets for young professionals to upcoming Cincinnati Ballet performances.

“We’ve found that ballet still remains a mystery to many of our contemporaries; however, we’ve also
found that those same people come to love it as much as we do once they’ve been properly exposed
to it and have the opportunity to interact with the creators and artists that bring it to life.”
– Matthew Selker (Co-Founder and President, Attitude)

As a group of vested urban professionals with a passion for building community, the Attitude Board recognizes how fortunate we are to have a vibrant and top-tier ballet company in our city. As Cincinnati Ballet celebrates its 50th anniversary during the 2013-2014 Season, we see it as our job to ensure their next 50 years with growing pride, purpose and imagination.
