Milwaukee Ballet worked with 100 families and organizations to raise more than 26 million dollars to build the Baumgartner Center for Dance. With seven studios, updated space for artists and staff, and expansion opportunities for our School & Academy, this world-class facility is a home that will serve thousands of dancers and dance lovers to make Milwaukee a more vibrant place for many years to come.
We are continuing to raise funds as an opportunity to give back to this community and further our mission, leading with the creation of a new production of The Nutcracker.
Michael Pink’s vision for a new Nutcracker combines the tradition, nostalgia and magic of today’s production, with the excitement of an expanded imaginary world. New spectacular sets, choreography and costumes will bring the vision to life!
Gifts will enable us to support not only a new production of The Nutcracker, but provide more roles and opportunities for local children to participate in the production and increase our ability to connect with our community through sensory-friendly performances and student matinees. This supports our philosophy of “ballet without boundaries”, breaking down traditional barriers so more people can experience the beauty of ballet in Milwaukee.
Your gift will help us keep the tradition of The Nutcracker alive for generations to come! Join us and be part of something bigger.
