DIVERSITY & VALUES
Ballet Idaho uses our core values to make decisions and interact with others. These values represent what is important to Ballet Idaho; they support our vision and how we shape our culture. Our core values are:
DEDICATION TO LEARNING
COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
As an organization, we are committed to being open, welcoming and inclusive, a place where artists, students, staff, board members and volunteers of all ethnicities, orientations and backgrounds can collaboratively learn, work and serve. We are committed to our mission to
“To create transformative experiences that enrich lives and celebrate the human spirit.”
As a community, both local and national, there are events that sadden our hearts, and as an organization of artists we embrace uncomfortable thoughts and conversations that have emerged from these events. These topics help us grow as artists and leaders, and inspire us to consider our actions. With that in mind, the Ballet Idaho board of directors and staff agree to work towards the following:
- We will consider diverse perspectives in the creation of programming. We will be mindful of different backgrounds as we collaborate with artists to support our work.
- We will strive for diversity in the recruitment of company dancers, staff, leadership and board members.
- We will create policies that support equity and diversity.
- We will pursue board and staff diversity training.
