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.
Who We Are
MAB stands for Mid-Atlantic Ballet, of course, but we like to say that MAB also means “mind, art, body.”Founded in 1997 by Sara Taylor Neal, MAB is a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing the minds and bodies of its students as well as promoting dance as an art form.
Located in the heart of downtown Newark, Delaware, MAB may best be described as a pre-professional ballet conservatory, emphasizing classical ballet training as the foundation for excellence in all other styles of dance. MAB's superb training attracts students ages four through adult from throughout the Delaware Valley. Our carefully devised syllabus blends the proven English, Russian, and American philosophies of ballet training.
Artistic Director Patrick Korstange emphasizes a thorough mastery of technique at every level. Serious dancers at MAB may develop both the discipline and the technique needed to pursue a career as a professional dancer or dance teacher. Alumni of the program currently dance at Pennsylvania Ballet, Colorado Ballet, and Columbia City Ballet of South Carolina, among others.
MAB is also committed to providing high-quality performance opportunities for its students. With two main-stage productions of full-length ballets each year at the University of Delaware's Mitchell Hall, as well as several smaller in-studio performances and outreach programs, MAB's students continually delight and amaze audiences in northern Delaware and surrounding communities.
