Contempo Ballet affirms that all individuals, their backgrounds, cultures, artistic talents and abilities not only impact, but contribute greatly to understanding the whole of humanity and in discovering common ground. We embrace, honor and celebrate every corner of diversity and cultural equity by committing to, nurturing, supporting and encouraging anyone currently and historically underrepresented throughout all of society and in the arts community based on, but not limited to, color, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, veteran status, geography, citizenship status or national origin, language, and/or other unique characteristics which promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.
Contempo Ballet pledges to foster, cultivate and preserve a philosophy of diversity, equity and inclusion by actively partnering up and engaging with other organizations which also embody the aforementioned values, attitudes, policies and best practices related to representing and serving all communities while responsibly treating others with dignity and respect.
Contempo Ballet includes these principles by stating how, “Its mission is to promote multicultural appreciation of artistic expression through Dance that unites, inspires, educates, empowers, and forever transforms the lives of the people in our ever-changing world.”
