Inspire human connection, collaboration, and creativity by making moving art.
Louisville Ballet, led by Artistic + Executive Director Robert Curran, is an evolved, but accessible form of artistic expression that boldly and beautifully communicates stories both classic and new. We exist to move, to evoke emotion, to provoke thought, and to challenge perceptions. We are artists, athletes and activists. We are inventors and inspirers. We have been one of the nation’s leading ballet companies since 1952. As the Official State Ballet of Kentucky, we have hosted some of ballet’s biggest names including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Twyla Tharp and Wendy Whelan, performed for tens of thousand of people and reached over 20,000 school children throughout the commonwealth with educational programs annually.
When you give to Louisville Ballet, you’ll help us make a visible and tangible impact on communities statewide, partnering with internationally known choreographers, and programming ambitious works that establish us as a world-class jewel in Louisville’s crown.
Louisville Ballet Studio Company, formerly known as the Trainee Program, is a tuition-free program designed to provide professional caliber training in technique and artistry in preparation for a professional career in classical ballet and versatility in various derivative styles. Our goal is to further an aspiring dancer’s education and aid in the aspirations of gaining professional employment by providing the opportunity to experience work in a fully professional company environment.
Louisville Ballet Studio Company is a 4-year program forming Levels 7, 8, 9 and 10 – a post-secondary extension of the Pre-Professional Program at The Louisville Ballet School. These emerging artists are truly the bridge between the School and Company.
To be considered for Louisville Ballet Studio Company, a dancer should attend a company audition.
