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.

MOVING BEYOND: 2020|21 Season

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 Studios, but subscribers will also be given exclusive opportunities to engage with our artists and be immersed in the creative process.

We stand with the countless Americans and families who have lost their lives or been suppressed by acts of institutional racism and violence. We stand with peaceful protesters who demand change. As an arts organization, we strive and pledge to be an example of positive change. These recent events have strengthened our commitment to address issues of systemic racism and make a difference through our art and our actions. #blacklivesmatter 

“The purpose of art is higher than art.”
