govartsThe Minnesota Ballet’s mission, through its professional company and school, is to inspire a love and appreciation for dance, to advance the art of ballet, to increase access to the art form, and to use its resources to benefit the greater community.

Operational support for the Minnesota Ballet is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Operational funding is received from the National Endowment for the Arts, the McKnight Foundation, Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, Miller-Dwan Foundation, Wildey Mitchell Family Foundation, and The Depot United Campaign. Minnesota Ballet is also generously supported by many businesses and individuals of our community.
