Deeply rooted in its community for over 38 years, Madison Ballet provides exceptional arts experiences for individuals of all ages through its dazzling performances, engaging and accessible outreach programs, and the highly-regarded School of Madison Ballet.
Madison Ballet brings a fresh and entertaining approach to classical dance. Best known for its annual production of The Nutcracker, the company's performances range from steampunk rock ballet to contemporary works by emerging artists.
The mission of Madison Ballet is to promote appreciation and access to ballet by providing training and performing opportunities through professionally produced productions and educational initiatives.
In support of the mission statement, the artistic vision of Madison Ballet outlines the framework of the educational programs and productions of Madison Ballet. Madison Ballet’s artistic vision focuses on three areas: education, performing opportunities and teaching/choreographing opportunities.
In 2011, Madison Ballet proudly celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. That milestone offered a moment to reflect upon Madison Ballet’s beginnings, its artistic and educational successes to date, and its future direction. Just as importantly, it marked a time to recognize and thank all who have made this anniversary possible: young dancers and their teachers, volunteers, donors, community partners, and audiences of all ages. Without their passion for dance, Madison Ballet would not be where it is today.
