See also

Indianapolis City Ballet is once again offering a new series of master classes during the 2014-2015 season. These classes are an incredibly opportunity for students of all abilities to learn from the best of the best, which include the academy directors they read about in Dance Magazine, the principal dancers they watch for hours on Youtube, and the company staff they dream of auditioning for someday. The Jack and Penny Fortune Master Class Series began in 2010, and it has met with smashing success. It is a rare privilege for these young dancers to learn from industry professionals in their hometown.

Intermediate and advanced students participate in a 90 minute ballet class with an informal question and answer session, and local dance teachers and other professionals have the option to observe the master class for a small fee. The class fee is $30 for students and $10 for observers.
