Empowering Women through ballet

As one of only five women in leadership roles at dance companies across the country, a cornerstone of Artistic Director and CEO Victoria Morgan’s legacy is her focus on female leadership. As part of her 20th Season as Artistic Director, Cincinnati Ballet is expanding its mission to promote female leadership through the creation of a women’s affinity group, Étoile.

Étoile is the title given to superstar female dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet. Cincinnati Ballet’s Étoile group will bring together our very own superstar females from across Cincinnati to connect, network, celebrate and support each other through parties and behind-the-scenes interactions with today’s leading female choreographers and dancers. Through this all-female event series, we aim to cultivate a spirit of female empowerment and challenge the current landscape of leadership across the nation.

By illuminating the talents of our community’s extraordinary female leaders and continuing to pursue groundbreaking social and artistic initiatives, Cincinnati Ballet aspires to both elevate our art form and support a bright future for women in our field and beyond.
