Saint Paul Ballet’s vision is to rejoice in the beauty and immediacy of dance and to lift the human spirit through the art of ballet.

When you invest your dollars you will help more than 100 aspiring dancers at Saint Paul Ballet. Eighty-two cents of every dollar invested goes directly to students and the artists who learn, teach, accompany, perform and create the art.

Together, we help make our community a place where we are proud to live and work.

Thank you so very much for supporting our vision, to rejoice in the beauty and immediacy of dance with the widest possible audience and lift the human spirit through the art of ballet.

It is our privilege to provide the finest dance education, reduce barriers to involvement in the art of dance, and perform a vibrant repertory with a passion for the highest level of excellence.

Support like yours has built, and continues to sustain, Saint Paul Ballet!

Fusing Music & Movement to Make the Ordinary Extraordinary

We believe…

  • Dance, like laughter, is a fundamental part of who we are. We were born to move.
  • Dancers are our storytellers and teachers. The traditions of dance are centuries old, and taught from one body to another.
  • Our community benefits from those participating, attending, and sharing their art and language of music and movement.
