Ballet Idaho’s mission is to promote classical and contemporary ballet by encouraging artists to greatness and inspiring the public to value the performing arts. We enrich our community through quality performances, disciplined training, dance outreach, and education.
Ballet Idaho has been performing in Idaho since 1972. Currently it has an artistic staff of 25 dancers, a professional teaching staff of ten, a professional costume designer, a production staff of three, and an administrative staff of 6. Up to 40 musicians from the Boise Philharmonic and two pianists provide musical accompaniment for Ballet Idaho’s performances, rehearsals and classes depending on the production or project.
Ballet Idaho offers a full season of 20 performances from November through May. We offer a professional Academy of Dance, training students in classic ballet and extensive educational outreach programs for students in Boise, the Treasure Valley, and throughout Idaho. As the only professional ballet company in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming, Ballet Idaho provides important artistic opportunities and experiences that greatly enrich the creative vitality of the Idaho community.
Ballet Idaho served a total audience of 23,871 this past year and its educational outreach programs served over 15,000 students during the academic year.
