Amazing Kids! of the Month – August 1998 – Saint Joseph Ballet

Saint Joseph Ballet is a ballet school and dance company located in the heart of some of the toughest inner-city neighborhoods in Southern California. For 15 years, Saint Joseph Ballet has worked with the youth in the area to offer them a creative alternative to gangs, drugs, teenage pregnancy and latch-key loneliness. With a majority of the dance students on scholarship, Saint Joseph Ballet has empowered at-risk youth to gain self-esteem, self-discipline and a sense of accomplishment.  With impassioned, dedicated artistic director Beth Burns at the helm, the company has received national recognition for artistic and program excellence. To date, over 32,000 inner-city youth have been reached through Saint Joseph Ballet’s dance training, performing and outreach programs.
