Vision Saint Paul Ballet’s vision is to lift the human spirit through the art of ballet. Mission Saint Paul Ballet’s mission is to perform a vibrant repertory with a passion for the highest level of excellence, provide the finest dance education and reduce barriers to involvement in the art of dance.
Company: The technical foundation of the ensemble of ten professional dancers springs from a deep love of classical ballet. They are masters of ballet’s universal language and its countless nuances that also brings integrity to their contemporary work. They will stir our souls and articulate the resplendent as well as the relevant. The season includes fall tours, full-length holiday ballet, winter and spring mixed-repertoire programs.
School: We strive to create a nurturing environment in which the student’s individual development is supported. The pre-professional program provides clarity and strength while encouraging a life-long love of dance and healthy body image. Students build the foundation for college, conservatory or a professional career. Over 100 students each year are trained in a progressive classical curriculum with live accompaniment augmented by modern dance and other genres. Training is divided into levels appropriate to students’ age, maturity and dance expertise. Auditions are required for placement and advancement is based on strength, physical development and mastery.
Outreach: SPB serves an additional 200 students through music and movement programs for young dancers, teens and adults as well as the broader population through:
* Saint Paul Public Schools Community Education
* Free public performances
