Mobile Ballet has been the common barre for generations of dancers in the Mobile Bay area.
A commitment to superior dance education is matched to a legacy of quality performances that promote the ballet to the community as an expression of the human spirit.
With world-class artistic leadership and celebrated guest artists, Mobile Ballet has had a tremendous impact on the cultural, artistic and economic landscape of the Mobile Bay area for more than 30 years.
Each season includes a lavish presentation of the iconic Nutcracker, along with innovative choreography and sweeping scores to both fresh and classic performance including the Corps de Ballet and celebrated artists from New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theater and more.
Many students continue studies and professional careers with the country’s most respected ballet companies. Mobile Ballet maintains a shared commitment to bring the arts to the entire community. Thousands of school children throughout South Alabama enjoy the magic of live, fully-staged Mobile Ballet performances each year. In addition, “Share the Dance” partners with 40 area charities to ensure children and adults who otherwise would not have an opportunity can enjoy dance at its very finest.
“Sometimes people think ballet is just for a certain audience... but we want to bring it to everyone. Ballet is entertainment, but at the same time, it is food for the soul.”
