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.

Student Cast Announcement

On August 19, it was announced that after much deliberation, Milwaukee Ballet will be unable to perform Cinderella as scheduled in October. The traditional version of The Nutcracker will also, unfortunately, not be presented at the Marcus Performing Arts Center. With these updates to our season, I regret to inform you of the cancellation of the Student Cast Auditions for both productions.

While we are saddened that our season will not begin in Fall, we are currently planning to present our 2021 performances as scheduled beginning in February. Milwaukee Ballet Company will continue to monitor the cases of COVID-19 in our community and plan optimistically while making responsible and realistic decisions towards our performances.

Alternative performances and opportunities are being planned and will be unveiled shortly, which will include creative new ways to bring the magic of The Nutcracker to our community. MBSA Families will be among the first to receive updates regarding The Nutcracker, 2021 performances, and any additional performance opportunities.
