Ballet Montana

Ballet Montana began as Artisan Dance in 1995. It is a professional ballet company, in residence at Carroll College in Helena, whose performing members are employed by various established professional ballet companies throughout the United States and Canada. Ballet Montana dancers are generally 18 years of age and older unless showcasing exceptional younger talent. Ballet Montana provides a unique training ground for performers of high caliber by offering continual development and refinement of their technical and artistic skills.

Just as Artisan Dance has for 15 years presented high-quality professional dance performance to Montana - while educating audiences of all ages about the art of dance at a level normally not found in a cultural "outpost" region such as ours - Ballet Montana will in the coming years take this presentation beyond the borders of our state.

Ballet Montana explores the relationship between traditional and contemporary forms of dance by introducing original ballet works. Collaboration with other performing and visual artists broadens this experience and presentation. Ballet Montana's original productions contribute to the artistic identity of Montana and the region while presenting and preserving the integrity of the classics. Ultimately, Ballet Montana satisfies a full spectrum of dance exposure, and aspires to enhance the national American dance identity.

Ballet Montana is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
