The Hartfel mission is to facilitate greater awareness of the individual through the arts, in particular the art of ballet. We at Hartfel want to inspire self-worth and a sustaining belief in each individuals ability to make a lasting and meaningful contribution to each other and our community.  

  • Give Southern California residents a first-rate, professional ballet company, The JohnC Art Ballet.
  • Advance a revolutionary teaching program that makes a difficult art form accessible to all
  • Offer vital body awareness and art-conscious services to the blind, hearing-impaired, wheel-chair bound, as well as the economically and socially challenge
  • Programs:

    Classes are structured to focus on basic movement awareness with an emphasis on confidence, posture, and building spatial awareness skills. From this basic foundation the classes advance into formal ballet steps and vocabulary. Opportunities for serious students who wish to pursue ballet with a performance emphasis will become available as the program progresses, eventually leading to the possibility of a career as a professional member of the Hartfel Ballet.

    I've had a great experience as a Board member of Harfel. Since inception, the company has been passionate and committed about achieving their vision to not only transform Ballet arts, but also outreach to the community including those with disabilities. As a person you grow with the Hartfel. They share their artistic values with you through mentoring and honest feedback. If you can't take the truth about yourself, then the Hartfel is not for you. They aren't shy or apologetic about confronting complacency. That passion is what is transformative about them. I think they could focus more on developing their Blind dancer program. This is an area where there are more potential funds and grants to be secured.

    What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

    helping them gain some additional grant money

    If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

    realize a strategic plan they've had waiting in the wings for years. Create a fabulous Blind and Deaf Dancer program.
