Cincinnati Ballet’s Étoile group continues to bring together remarkable women from throughout Cincinnati to connect, network, celebrate, and support each other through exclusive events and behind-the-scenes interactions with today’s outstanding female choreographers, dancers, and community leaders. In addition to exhilarating and thought-provoking conversation, the group includes gatherings that focus simply on friendship and fun.

“We will introduce you to world premiere works by female choreographers, including a new ballet I am working on – Dancing to Oz. The orientation of bringing women forward and encouraging confidence to lean into leadership has been a priority for me. I chose to focus on the themes of self-exploration and confidence to be particularly encouraging to women and young girls, who like the main character, Dottie, often do not like the image they face every day in the mirror.” – Étoile founding member Victoria Morgan, Artistic Director of Cincinnati Ballet

BRAVA! Étoile funds help Cincinnati Ballet to continue to be dedicated leaders in programming and promoting female choreographers like Jennifer Archibald, Pamela Robinson-Harris, Peggy Dolkas, Mia Michaels and Victoria Morgan.
