Our Commitment to DEI

Our mission is to transform lives and connect communities through inspiring dance, community engagement, education, and training. To truly live this mission, we must strive to represent our community and provide an inclusive space where everyone can excel. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Council is made up of representatives from our administrative business staff, school and academy, artistic staff and leadership team. The council focuses on equity issues within our art form as well as Milwaukee Ballet’s role in making meaningful change in our city.

We have supported ‘Ballet Without Boundaries’ for many years through Community Engagement programs including Relevé, Tour de Force, our Ballet-in-a-Box tour and sensory-friendly performances of The Nutcracker. Yet, our commitment and focus extends beyond our community engagement programs as we strive to be leaders in supporting racial equity and accessibility.
