Founded in 2013, the Evansville Ballet Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 community-based arts organization whose mission is to enrich, expand, and excel in the art of dance through performance and impactful education and outreach in local to global communities. 


Evansville Ballet Theatre, Inc. creates programs and performances where every person can be a part of the continued development of dance.  Our outreach programs and performances reach the underserved and special needs students in our community, where they otherwise may not be able to participate. We provide dance education through several forms of dance styles. Staff interact directly with the students with fun and exciting ways to stimulate them physically and mentally.


We currently reach about a 5,000 population, with 2,500 being students, ages K-12 through our performances, master classes and outreach.
