National Dance Week - STL - 2014

April 26, 2014

Missouri Ballet Theatre was founded in May of 2009 by Adam Sage. Since its inception MBT has continued to bring first class dance to the community holding performances of The Nutcracker, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cinderella, Dracula and Concepts. MBT has held educational performances for over 3000 young people from all over the city and counties. More than 500 local children have been afforded the opportunity to perform side by side with the professional dancers of MBT in presentations of our full length story ballets.

In recognition of the community's rich tradition of arts innovation and virtuosity, Missouri Ballet Theatre seeks to inspire and cultivate excellence in classical ballet and contemporary dance: Through distinctive collaborations with area arts organizations, performers, and musicians to explore the fusion of movement with other forms of artistic expression; By providing a platform for well-trained and focused professional dancers to flourish in a stimulating and creative environment; and espousing artistic enrichment through educational outreach, youth participation, and charitable partnerships.
