Poster 51: Nicole Kallsen – Seeking common ground: A case study on ballet’s cultural support in Salt Lake City, Utah

Faculty mentor: Kate Mattingly

This research analyzes the structures of support for ballet in Salt Lake City, Utah, looking specifically at how people perceive, present, and participate in ballet. This research challenges the idea that ballet is an “art for art’s sake” dance form and shows how ballet can nurture communities. Ultimately, I show that it is important to consider how communities value the arts, human expression, and human bodies, because these elements influence support for ballet.
