Montana Ballet Company

The Montana Ballet Company was founded in Gallatin Valley in 1984, bringing together the fine art of live dance in collaboration with world-renowned professional dancers, musicians, conductors, filmmakers, composers, and set designers. The Company was founded by the late Ann Bates. Ms. Bates believed that “nowhere else in the rural west is there a small dance company with our big company goals.” The Montana Ballet company is most well known for their original productions and international guest companies. Montana Ballet Company’s collection is rich and diverse including classical ballets, as well as original contemporary and modern pieces.

Montana’s Ballet Company’s mission is to enrich and inspire the minds and spirits of our community of dancers and audience members. Their vision is to present the highest caliber dance performances, offer the finest quality training, and provide meaningful access to the arts.
