making. moving. art.

Mission

Inspire human connection, collaboration, and creativity by making moving art.

History

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.

Contribute

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.
