To create transformative experiences that enrich lives and celebrate the human spirit.
To engage with Idaho communities to create immersive dance performances and educational experiences that are accessible to all.
Ballet Idaho has been performing in Idaho since 1972. Currently, Ballet Idaho has an artistic staff of 24 dancers, a professional teaching staff of 18, a production staff of three, and an administrative staff of 12. Up to 40 musicians from the Boise Philharmonic and two pianists provide musical accompaniment for our performances, rehearsals, and classes depending on the production or project.
Ballet Idaho offers a full season of 23 performances from November through May. We offer a professional Academy of Dance, training students in classical 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 more than 24,000 audience members this past year and our educational outreach programs served over 15,000 students during the academic year.
As a nonprofit organization, contributions are what keep us thriving. When you make a gift to Ballet Idaho you are supporting the creation of new works, making a difference in the lives of our dancers, promoting our Academy of young dancers, and bringing arts education programs to students and organizations throughout Idaho.
