“My wife and I were very surprised and impressed with the quality of The Nutcracker ballet performance a couple of weeks ago.  Our granddaughter, Mazzie, although only 4 years old, was very impacted by you.  We are interested in making sure that the organization continues to impact young boys and girls by showing them the meaning of commitment to something worthwhile.  Please keep up your good work. And thanks!”

John and Lori Anderson

“Thank you for the wonderful workshops at Debra Collier's School of Dance today. We truly enjoyed every moment! Your dancers are beautiful both inside and out.  Mindi and the dancers are just amazing.”

Debra Collier, Director/Owner, Debra Collier's School of Dance Warsaw, Indiana

“The workshops that ECB did at our studio were wonderful!  Beautiful dancers inside, and out and the amazing faculty that clearly loves what they do.” 

Tammy Seibold

“The Spellbound tour did a few things for me.  First off, it gave me a glimpse at what performing on tour is like.  Second, it gave me a chance to get to know everyone a little better allowing all of us to grow more closely knit.  Thirdly, and most importantly, it made me realize, what we do is much more than performing, much like how Spellbound is much more than another show.  This tour has been the most productive thing I could have done with my Spring Break.”

Brian Alford

“First of all, I would like to thank ECB for helping me reach my goal of going on pointe!  I know that without the kind and encouraging studio environment you have created, I would have never been confident enough, in myself, to begin taking classes.  You and your studio have done a magnificent job at glorifying the Lord both through dance and the way you act and treat others.  The genuine kindness and patience you have shown me, truly goes a long way.  Thank you so much, for all the confidence and joy ECB has given me.”

Madeleine Morrison

“You are forever in my heart and in my mind - your graceful love for the Lord and your love for the lost and broken.  It is a display of God’s rich presence and bountiful gifts to you.  I rejoice in having you in my life always!  Love you!”

Kathleen Fannin

“East Coast Ballet gave our members an experience of a lifetime, one they will always remember.  To be able to be a part of a dance performance during their stay in a homeless shelter was truly uplifting for them.  As a result of their participation, we saw a transformation in their self esteem and social adaptability.  Thank you for this opportunity!”

Sarah Humphreys, The Sulzbacher Center

“This is my daughters’ second year with ECB, and I should say, they extremely love it!!! Their teachers and staff are so friendly, professional, and work hard on each and single kid there.  My daughters are learning so much.  We’re glad that we are a part of their family!  We just love ECB!”

The Torbey Family

“I am so happy that I discovered East Coast Ballet!  My shy daughters (age 7 and 9) are developing a personal confidence that can be attributed to their experience in the studio and on the stage with East Coast Ballet.  They love, love, love being part of the ECB family of dancers!”

Mary Wohlgemuth

“ECB absolutely has the best technical ballet instruction a studio could have.  We have loved every minute of our time there.”

East Coast Ballet has been involved in community outreach since it’s beginning.  We work with local schools, communities, churches, organizations, etc. Workshops can be arranged on site, or outside groups may come to our studios to participate in custom programs geared to their specific needs. ECB dance outreaches offer story- telling, heart-searching, mind-provoking, decision-making programs.  We also offer inspirational dance pieces that stand alone or may be combined to tailor-fit an outreach to individual organizational needs.

ECB School

ECB Artists


ECB works onsite in neighborhoods with those who have no transportation or funds for dance education.  We also invite groups to workshops held at ECB facilities.  Our company artists join in teaching and performing.  Many participants have never worn a costume, performed on stage in front of an audience, or been in a theatre, as an audience member.  Our mission includes providing these opportunities to those who have not been able to experience the dance arts.  Our circle of influence reaches private and public schools, malls, parks, museums, shelters, senior living facilities, mission houses, community centers, nursing homes, orphanages, and churches.  All people should be exposed to dance in some form or another, realizing the great potential to bring joy to the hearts and souls of people.

ECB has worked on projects with organizations, such as the Sulzbacher House in downtown Jacksonville, Seamark Ranch, Spanish Oaks Community Center, and in big cities such as: NYC, Orlando, Pheonix, Chicago, and orphanages of the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas.  Students of ECB are invited to participate and give their time and talents to help touch and change lives of people from different backgrounds who, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to experience music and dance.  See comments from the organizations and students who have participated, below.

East Coast Ballet dancers have the opportunity to perform dance educational programs in schools throughout North East Florida.  Examples of outreaches to Jacksonville schools include:  Episcopal High School, Beaches Episcopal, St. Paul’s Catholic, Providence, Beaches Chapel, Harvest Community School, Fletcher High School, Sea Coast Christian Academy, Alimacani Elementary School, & W.M. Raines High School.  The programs offer uplifting, encouraging, and challenging topics, ministering to all ages.
