MABETA

In 2008, the Massachusetts Academy of Ballet Educational Training Association (MABETA) was launched. The mission of this not-for-profit initiative is to educate residents of Holyoke and the surrounding communities about the art of classical ballet; to perform ballet at schools, senior centers and other community venues; to offer scholarships for the underprivileged and/or
under-funded students interested in studying classical ballet.  MABETA has formed many collaborative partnerships with community institutions including the Wistariahurst Museum, the Holyoke Children’s Museum, the South Hadley Public Library, Westfield Arts on the Green, and the Holyoke Public Library. We gratfully accept donations for any amount to support our programs

 

 

Music for Ballet

Rose and Charles Flachs

A multifaceted CD of great music. Ideally suited for teaching or taking class, one of the few that follows the correct sequence of exercises at the barre and in the center with the right build up of tempos.
