2020 / 2021 Season of Illumination

Louisville Ballet is thrilled to announce our move to an entirely digital stage for our 2020 / 2021 Season of Illumination!

We are on a journey, seeking ways to bring dance, art and performance into the future. Through our partnership with KERTIS Creative, we will create ballet art film productions, performed and filmed from inside Louisville Ballet’s Main Street studio building. Productions will range from locally-inspired new works to internationally recognized classics, all innovatively and cinematically filmed.
