Ballet After Dark is a dynamic non-profit organization that has been providing Baltimore residents with innovative ways to heal their traumas. Our mission is to provide somatic interventions, trauma-informed care, dance therapy and other holistic methods to encourage survivors of various levels of violence to heal their bodies using movement. Ballet After Dark (BAD) helps survivors reprocess, rebuild and reclaim their lives following sexual and domestic trauma. Our goal is to create a community of survivors. We believe that Community is the most impactful asset to healing and the greatest threat to an abuser. Survivors that participate in our cohorts receive trauma-informed dance classes, mental health therapy, financial literacy workshops, self-defense workshops and advocacy training. We rely on the generosity of the community to provide these necessary healing resources to our community. Funds raised will support Ballet After Dark's core programs:
Black Swan Dance Therapy Cohort
Ballet After Dark Performance Ensemble
B.A.D. Girls Club
