Downtown Newark - what a great place to be! Our thriving community has much to offer – a great social scene, a renowned University, wonderful businesses such as yours and a vibrant arts community – of which Mid-Atlantic Ballet (MAB) is a big part.
MAB is a non-profit, pre-professional ballet school where our mission is to foster an environment in which all dancers can develop their minds by gaining an appreciation of the arts as well as train their bodies through classical ballet, dance instruction and superior performances for the community, including the beloved annual holiday classic, The Nutcracker.
MAB is also an important component in helping the local economy. Research shows that towns with a vibrant arts community benefit in their local economy. A thriving cultural scene is good for business. Mid-Atlantic Ballet and the Newark community are a great example of this mutually beneficial relationship.
Arts and culture enhance the community by making it a more desirable place to live.
Performances are instrumental in helping to promote the area by bringing in patrons that come to the performances who are also likely to spend additional money at local stores and restaurants.
MAB families also tend to frequent the local businesses. A survey of our members last year indicated that 85% of them eat and shop in downtown Newark between one to four times each week.
As a non-profit organization, we look to businesses such as yours to help MAB continue to be an important thread in the Newark cultural scene.
