Ballet Out Loud: The Podcast

While we are eagerly waiting to get back into the studios, we thought we’d take our time at home and use it to create a brand new project just for you – Ballet Idaho Out Loud: The Podcast.


The behind the scenes world of a ballet company is just as beautiful and exciting as the dances that are performed on stage. Every week on Tuesday mornings you can explore this landscape with Ballet Idaho’s Artistic Director Garrett Anderson and Artistic Associate Anne Mueller as your guides. You will get a glimpse into the daily lives of dancers, discover the creative process of world renowned choreographers, and learn more of why the art of dance will never cease to be relevant.


Listen on Anchor, Spotify, iTunes, or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
