Fort Wayne Ballet Mission:
​Our Mission is to feed the spirit and spark the imagination through the highest caliber professional and academy performances, dance training, and community engagement.

As Indiana’s longest-standing professional ballet company and one of the nation’s most revered organizations for dancers of all ages, we see the benefits of dance first-hand. Audiences love our performances as much as our students love sharing their work. Dance is enriching lives of all ages, and it shows!

Because dance is a lifelong passion, we meet people where they are, whether exploring movement for the first time, performing in the prime of life, or experiencing the magic from the audience.

We know that not all of our students will become professional dancers. But we also know that, with a little support, every single child who passes through our studio can grow into a strong, confident adult –  with poise and grace, a respect for the arts and other cultures, and an independent spirit.

Start to finish, Fort Wayne Ballet completes the circle in the life cycle of dance.


Fort Wayne Ballet is Indiana’s preeminent and oldest professional ballet Company and Academy. We are proud to say that our reputation for exceptional classical and contemporary dance training and performances is spreading from northern Indiana through the Midwest, and across nations and oceans. We’ve reached a new level of global awareness about the work and accomplishments we’re achieving and sharing, and it’s the result of our dedicated company, students, parents, and supporters like you. Thank you, all!
