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.

Experience The Nutcracker for the first time or as part of your family’s holiday tradition. The merry party with the children’s hijinks and gown-ups’ little dramas. The Mouse King’s flying leap into battle with the Nutcracker. The flurry of twirling snowflakes. The “utterly adorable” gingerbread children emerging from Mother Ginger’s skirts. The swirling bouquet of waltzing flowers. The new Minnesota Ballet Orchestra plays the Tchaikovsky score live.

The Ballet staff is happy to be back in our office. Our company is glad to be back in our Grain Exchange studio, as are our students who had to take class in a temporary studio.
Thanks to all who who supported us during the Great Chimney Disruption and to all who cheerfully weathered the changes.
