April 26-28 & May 3-5, 2024 at Peter Martin Wege Theatre

Experience “one of the greatest ballets of all time” (New York Times, October 2022) right here in Grand Rapids in our Peter Martin Wege Theatre as Grand Rapids Ballet presents In The Upper Room by renowned choreographer Twyla Tharp. Be captivated as our dancers push themselves to the edge of physical limits, propelled by the driving Philip Glass score. As the work is performed in both sneakers and pointe shoes, the choreography draws on elements of classical ballet, jazz, tap dance, yoga, and boxing to create a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. This program also features the return of Serenade, Balanchine’s memorable 1934 neo-classic masterpiece, featuring sweeping choreography, exquisite stage patterns, and iconic long tulle dresses, all paired with a lush score by Tchaikovsky. Two of ballet’s most celebrated works in one unforgettable program makes this a performance you do not want to miss!


Grand Rapids Ballet is thrilled to present our highly anticipated 2024-25 season. This unique lineup features a blend of inspirational concepts, cutting-edge contemporary works, and euphoric story ballets, programming for everyone to enjoy.

The 2024-25 season kicks off in October with Symphony of Movement, a thrilling first-ever collaboration with the Grand Rapids Symphony on our Peter Martin Wege Theatre stage. In December, we ignite the holiday spirit with the 10th anniversary celebration of our beloved production, The Nutcracker. We soar to new heights in February with the enchanting Peter Pan at DeVos Performance Hall. Spring brings the return of the audience-favorite Jumpstart, where our dancers choreograph world-premiere works on their peers. We wrap up this exhilarating season with a time-travel to the 1960s in San Fransisco with Be Here Now at Peter Martin Wege Theatre.
