About BalletMet

Renowned for its versatility and innovative repertory, BalletMet ranks among the nation’s largest professional ballet companies. Since its inception in 1978, BalletMet has made the commission and performance of new works a core organizational priority, with more than 150 World Premieres and hundreds of Company Premieres performed throughout its history. BalletMet stages 60 to 70 performances each year at home and on tour. In the past, the company has toured 28 U.S. states and internationally to Russia, Poland, Egypt, Spain and Canada.

The DanceReach program offers up to 70 scholarships each year to talented youth, many from minority and under-served groups, who could not otherwise participate.
