Mission Statement

The mission of Pennsylvania Ballet is to contribute to the well-being of our society by enhancing, enriching, and expanding the cultural lives of the residents of the Delaware Valley, educating its citizens in and through the art of dance, and acting as a leader and creative force in the regional cultural community. In recognition of this important artistic and civic role, Pennsylvania Ballet strives to maintain and nurture a Philadelphia-based company, preserve its strong classical tradition, offer to the widest possible audience the finest in individual artistry, and continue to expand and diversify its repertoire through the creation of new works and the presentation of existing dance masterpieces.

Description

The premier classical ballet company in the Philadelphia region, Pennsylvania Ballet is currently comprised of 36 dancers and two apprentices. The Company is headquartered on Broad and Washington Streets at the beginning of Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts. This state-of-the-art facility houses several dance studios, artistic and administrative staff offices, wardrobe and costume department, the Rock School of the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Performing Arts Physical Therapy Center. Drawing its audiences from throughout the tri-state region, Pennsylvania Ballet presents a season of six productions each year, plus the holiday spectacular, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, balancing classic ballets with new works that challenge the dancers and attract a diverse audience. Under the artistic leadership of Roy Kaiser, the Company is committed to presenting at least one world premiere each season. During the Company's 38-year history, it has commissioned original ballets from such choreographers as Merce Cunningham, Christopher d'Amboise, Trey McIntyre, Matthew Neenan, Kevin O'Day, David Parsons, and Lynne Taylor-Corbett.
