Our Artists

Our international artists have made Milwaukee their home. Under the direction of Michael Pink, the longest-serving Artistic Director in Milwaukee Ballet history, they bring our art to life on stage with passion and energy. 

Our Milwaukee Ballet II (MBII) Second Company elevates the next generation of dancers. These artists dedicate a year of their lives to ballet, training, and performance in pursuit of a professional career.

Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy

Milwaukee Ballet provides education in dance, and experience for a lifetime, with three convenient locations of Downtown Milwaukee, Brookfield, and Fox Point.

An education in ballet teaches more than how to point your toes. Students learn poise, teamwork, and discipline – skills that lead to success both on stage and off. We strive to make ballet available to all who wish to dance, regardless of background, experience, or age.

Community & Outreach

Our Engagement programs promote confidence, a healthy lifestyle, and creativity through accessible performances, in studio educational opportunities, and inclusive programming.. By introducing ballet to audiences of all ages, we bring the power of movement to life and inspire everyone we reach. These programs strive to break down traditional barriers so more people can share in the power of dance.
