Milwaukee Ballet

Milwaukee Ballet gained new momentum as it entered the 1990s. During this decade Milwaukee audiences were introduced to such pieces as Bruce Wells’ Romeo & Juliet, George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments and Lisa de Ribere’s Harvest Moon. And in an effort to commission at least one world premiere every year, Milwaukee Ballet continued to welcome guest choreographers such as Kathryn Posin and Peter Anastos into its studios.

Since 1970, Milwaukee Ballet has been graced by the presence of incredible artistic talent. Artistic directors such as Yuri Gotschalks, Gloria Gustafson, Jean-Paul Commelin, Ted Kivitt, Robert Weiss, Dane LaFontsee, Basil Thompson, Simon Dow, and Michael Pink have inspired three decades of artistic evolution.

Milwaukee Ballet strives to inspire its audiences to think within and beyond traditional ballet through the presentation of quality performances and the implementation of educational opportunities. Milwaukee Ballet and Milwaukee Ballet School are recognized among the top companies in the nation. With an annual operating budget of more than $5 million, Milwaukee Ballet presents more than 40 performances to more than 50,000 people each year. Its resident company includes 25 professional dancers along with 18 trainees in its Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II program and is one of the few dance companies in the country to maintain its own symphony orchestra. Milwaukee Ballet School, the official school of the Ballet, is a nationally accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD) with an enrollment of nearly 900 students at three locations throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
