Spring Break For Kids is going virtual!  Join us April 5-18 as we present Peter and the Wolf, sponsored by PNC Bank and hosted by artistic director James Sofranko, in collaboration with the Battle Creek Symphony.  Spring Break for Kids is tailored specifically for youngsters, and this year features the beloved story of Peter and the Wolf, with music by Sergei Prokofiev. Hear (and see) the musicians of the Battle Creek Symphony led by music director Anne Harrigan and watch the music come alive in a brand-new staging, co-choreographed by Artistic Director James Sofranko and Ballet Master Dawnell Dryja.  Performed by the apprentices and trainees of the Grand Rapids Ballet, Peter and the Wolf tells the story of a brave young boy who with the help of his friends, a bird, a cat, and a duck, capture a wolf and take him to the zoo!

Thanks to our friends at PNC Bank, viewing Peter and the Wolf is free, but you must register your email to be sent the private Vimeo link. Register to receive the free Spring Break for Kids Peter and the Wolf Vimeo link here.

The Future of Ballet

Celebrating our 50th anniversary in the 2021|22 season, Michigan’s only professional ballet company is committed to lifting the human spirit through the art of dance under the current leadership of James Sofranko as artistic director, Glenn Del Vecchio as executive director, and Attila Mosolygo as director of Grand Rapids Ballet School and its Junior Company.

A proud recipient of the ArtServe Michigan Governor’s Arts Award for Outstanding Cultural Organization, Grand Rapids Ballet has a rich history marked by steady growth, a commitment to excellence, and strong community support.

We are a non-profit organization that has always depended on the generosity of the community. During this season without live performances, that generosity has never been more important. Thank you!

2020|21 Season: Moving Beyond

While we will miss the exhilaration of performing for you live in a theater, we are excited to present our art in a new way, delivered virtually to you in the comfort of your own home. Not only will our virtual season include four programs specifically created for the screen in partnership with SALT Creative Production Studios, but subscribers will also be given exclusive opportunities to engage with our artists and be immersed in the creative process.

Explore season subscription options today or purchase individual program “tickets” for only $15!
