MCB Launches 'DanceAbility' Program

Missouri Contemporary Ballet (MCB) is excited to announce the start of a new educational outreach program: DanceAbility. This program, conducted out of the School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet is catered toward students with special needs.

The School of MCB’s mission is to cultivate the artistic and personal development of our students by providing a supportive environment of dance study to motivate and inspire. DanceAbility will further this mission by giving students with special needs an opportunity to learn and explore the world of dance.

School Director Caroline Millikin Euker has worked with physical therapist Jennifer Highbarger to develop this program. The first 8-week session runs January 15th-March 5th.


Founded in 2006, Missouri Contemporary Ballet is Columbia’s resident professional dance company that is committed to creating and presenting high-quality productions and educational opportunities through the art of contemporary ballet. MCB strives to increase the appreciation of contemporary ballet through educational outreach programs, emphasizing innovative, athletic, and high-quality performances.
