Welcome to

minnesota ballet preview


Michigan Street in front of the Depot will be closed starting September 12. The city anticipates a two-week time-frame, but we’re estimating an “end of September” completion date to give room for delays. Parents will not be able to drop off students in front of the Depot. The parking lot will be open, and you can access the lot from 6th Avenue West. You can pull into the lot and drop off students there. The sidewalks will remain open. Please feel free to call the Ballet office with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience.

STORM DAMAGE UPDATE: Office Information:
Because of the chimney collapse at the Board of Trade Building during the July 21st storm, the Minnesota Ballet office space is closed. We are working out of a temporary office space across the street at 227 West 1st Street, Suite 312. Our phone (218) 529-3742 is being forwarded.

School Information:
The Minnesota Ballet has adapted a space for a dance studio until we can return home to the Board of Trade Building. The temporary studio is located at 114 West Superior Street, second floor, above Stewart Taylor Printing. We have tried to keep the younger children’s classes at the Depot, and this temporary space will replace our Grain Exchange Studio for the older students. Please double check the new class schedule for your class location:

The 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.

Thrill to the Ballet’s elegantly eerie “Dracula,” following the grand tradition of the Bram Stoker Gothic tale. Dark fantasy plays out in compelling dance to spooky classical music as mortals struggle to overcome vampire powers. For the Sunday matinee, the ballet invites children and older vampire enthusiasts to wear capes and fangs or their best Halloween outfits.
