Since its founding in 1978, Ballet Pensacola has served Northwest Florida by developing an appreciation and knowledge of the art of dance through excellent performances and quality dance education. Presenting a varied repertoire of classical and contemporary works, Ballet Pensacola is the area’s only resident professional ballet company. The company is comprised of professional dancers from around the world and talented student dancers who perform in all main stage productions during Ballet Pensacola’s season. These performances are held in a number of venues, including the Saenger Theatre and the Pensacola Cultural Center.
Ballet Pensacola’s Academy serves about 300 students each year through its main campus at the Pensacola Cultural Center and additional campuses. Specially trained artistic staff and faculty provide a challenging and enriching dance education through its syllabus-driven programming.
