Performances & Showcases

What we see onstage is the result of countless hours of toil, sweat, failure and resilience.  It is only by becoming a stronger person on the inside that we get to the seemingly effortless level of confidence exuded by our students.

Spring Showcase 2024

Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy presents Snow White for the 2024 Spring Showcase. This production of Snow White was created by Nadia Thompson, former rehearsal director for Milwaukee Ballet Company, in 2008 for intermediate and advanced students at MBSA and was adapted to feature MBSA students in all levels from Pre-Ballet I and higher in 2016. MBSA is proud to present this enchanting story to family and friends on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 at the Oak Creek Performing Arts & Education Center. All students* in Pre-Ballet I through Academy II are encouraged to participate in this annual Spring Showcase. Updates about the showcase will be posted here throughout the spring and will also be shared in My MBSA Newsletters.

*Students enrolled in Creative Movement, Dance Along With Me, and Drop-In Division classes do not participate in the Spring Showcase.


All currently registered students and families must complete the following steps no later than Monday, January 29:

  1. Review the Snow White Family Guide. Determine how this information applies to your family and decide if your student(s) will or will not plan to participate in the production. Don’t forget to mark your calendar with the important dates!
  2. Complete the Participation Survey (yes or no). A response is required for each student enrolled to indicate if they will or will not participate in the showcase. It take only seconds to complete.
