Master Class Series

The Indianapolis City Ballet Master Class Series, sponsored in part by Penny and Jock Fortune, started in January 2010 and has brought some of the world’s most renowned teachers and artists to Indianapolis. This series has served to unite a community of dance in Indianapolis and provided unique and special opportunities for students and teachers alike. With classes sizes capped to assure a productive experience, all have been filled to capacity.
