Minnesota Ballet

A nonprofit organization

Minnesota's largest professional ballet company north of the Twin Cities makes the art of dance accessible, regionally and nationally.

Founded 1965, the Minnesota Ballet provides the region academy-standard ballet training, stages major performances and outreach presentations, and represents the Northland in Minnesota, national, and international tours.

Offering an eclectic repertoire of classics, masterworks, and contemporary ballet, the company also encourages emerging artists through commissions and partnerships, thus furthering its mission to preserve and advance the art of ballet. 

Minnesota Ballet brings world-class professional dance to audiences who otherwise would not be able to experience it, building awareness and appreciation of this classic art form. 

Support for the Minnesota Ballet is essential to engage talented artists, to allow development time to create new works and stage masterworks, and to support outreach programs to underserved communities. 

The School of the Minnesota Ballet offers year-round pre-professional ballet training, plus a three-week summer intensive for area and out-of-state upper-level students; the school also serves the community through its Teen/Adult Division and ABLE program for children with physical/developmental challenges.
