Bloomington Ballet Theatre
Bloomington Ballet Theatre (formerly Youth Performance Ensemble) is a ballet-intensive program at Dance Endeavors under the direction of Lindsey Mornson & Juli Mickelson. Students take classical ballet technique to the next level by studying classical and contemporary styles of choreography. This ensemble is for our ballet dancers who want to dive a little deeper, study classical ballet, and perform both classical and contemporary ballet pieces. They prepare a work to perform at our annual SHOWCASE in February along with community performances.
The BBT program focuses on educating young people to strive for their personal best in anything they want to accomplish. We achieve our goals for the program by offering young people the chance to:
In 2019 the Bloomington Ballet Theatre will present Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons". Past ballet company performances have included "Carnival of the Animals" by Camile Saint-Saëns, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and more!
The 2019 SHOWCASE will be held on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 6:30pm at the Ives Auditorium, Masonic Heritage Center. Watch the website for ticket information!
