The strongest performances are built from within.

Meaning: What we see onstage is the result of countless hours of toil, sweat, failure and resilience.  It is only by becoming a stronger person on the inside that we get to the seemingly effortless level of confidence exuded by our students.

This is as true in life as it is in dance.

2021 Spring Showcase

Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy will present a brand new, all-school 2021 Spring Student Showcase featuring exciting, new choreography created for MBSA students by Artistic Director Michael Pink. The 2021 showcase will not have live performances; rather, each class will be professionally and individually filmed in our Baumgartner Center for Dance’s We Energies Performance Studio.

All classes Pre-Ballet I and up will rehearse during their regularly scheduled classes. Mandatory tech rehearsals and filming dates in May have been assigned for each class, as well. Students attending in-person classes are eligible to participate but must maintain regular class attendance and attend their scheduled tech rehearsal and filming dates.

Full details for mandatory rehearsals, filming dates, and more can be found in the Spring Student Showcase Family Guide.

Additional costume pieces will not be used for this showcase. All students must wear proper class attire per the MBSA Dress Code as well as a well-fitting solid white facemask to dress rehearsals and the filming dates. Students may wear any brand or style solid white facemask; however, white Bloch facemasks in adult and youth sizes are available for purchase through the Milwaukee Ballet Boutique for your convenience. Students must wear street shoes and cover ups or street clothes over their class attire when coming and leaving the studios.
