Abstract/Summary

The proposed study below discusses how Perry Sevidal Ballet School's organizational culture affects the behavior of its members. Thus, the researcher aims to determine how various cultural manifestations in the organization influences the students interpretation of growth and development. This is a visual ethnographic study in the form of a photo essay that reveals the different activities and practices existing in the organization. The study was based on Joanne Martins definition of organizational culture, which discussed how rituals, norms, values, physical arrangement, etc. can be used as a guide upon entering an entirely new culture. With regards to this, the researcher was able to find distinct characteristics of the Perry Sevidal Ballet School and how it directly shapes the actions and perceptions of its members. She was also able to use Joanne Martins differentiation perspective while analyzing data, which explains how certain organizations have the presence of subcultures that either live in harmony, conflict or indifference with each other. Upon finishing the study, the researcher was able to determine how the members have a collective understanding of how they can reach their utmost potential as dancers, with regards to growth and development. This therefore revealed how each member in the organization is a reflection of the ballet schools culture.
