Grand Rapids Ballet Tickets
The Grand Rapids Ballet has performed over hundreds of productions and delighted audiences every season. It all began in 1971 when Artistic Director Sally Seven began the Grand Rapids Civic Ballet. The company would merge with the Summerfest School of Grand Rapids, which was a school for professional dancers. That merging would birth the Grand Rapids Ballet Company. Under Charthel Arthur, the artistic director at the time, the ballet then achieved regional status and became part of the Midwest Regional Ballet Association. As the years moved past the 1990s, professional dancers were contracted for the first time. The Grand Rapids Ballet tour consists of 30 dancers from all around the world, and it also has trainees and apprentices. The school boasts an enrollment of over 270 students, with many of these individuals receiving free tuition because of the educational programs that the Ballet offers in the community. In this way, they have fostered and helped nurture the connection between the arts and education. Grab your Grand Rapids Ballet tickets now at StubHub.
A Global Ballet Company That Gives Back
There are quite a few performance halls that the Grand Rapids Ballet have grace with their presence, including the Peter Martin Wege Theatre. They also frequently travel across the state to perform in local cities and towns. The Grand Rapids Ballet has even performed in Quebec, Canada, frequently teaming up with the local orchestras and symphonies for incredible performances. With its emphasis on education and art's connectivity, the company has received a great deal of funding from local communities. This generosity has allowed them to transform an old bus garage into a brand-new space for rehearsals and a school facility. The Grand Rapids Ballet has also given back to the community through frequent opportunities for children to take lessons and undergo training to see if ballet is something in which they're interested pursuing.Back to Top
