Kabby Mitchell III will always be our touchstone. TUPAC would not exist without Kabby's vision and we shall forever be grateful for how he shaped our lives and shared with us his discipline, grace, fortitude, truth, constant quest for excellence and laughter.
We shall always honor his memory by keeping his passion for not only educating marginalized communities with high quality classical ballet technique, but also setting an example for guiding students in being respected world citizens.
Thank you, Mr. Mitchell - we stand on your shoulders, and will always strive to relay your high standards to our students.
