Ballet Midwest is dedicated to preserving the art of ballet in our local community. We offer the longest running production of the Nutcracker ballet in northeast Kansas, hosting our 40th year in 2016-17. This year's cast and crew is comprised of over 200 individuals from the Topeka and surrounding areas exclusively. In addition, Ballet Midwest offers a classical, full-length ballet in the spring featuring talented local dancers. Ballet Midwest plays a significant role in shaping the lives of youth in our area and building future leaders for our community. Consider partnering with Ballet Midwest as we strive to encourage and develop local youth and young adults while promoting the art form of ballet.

Team up with Ballet Midwest and support our local schools!
Every year, Ballet Midwest provides a FREE full-length benefit performance for area fourth graders, however schools have provided the transportation. With budget cuts, it is growing more difficult for schools to be able to take their students on important field trips and cuts to the arts are gradually making it more challenging for Ballet Midwest to keep this event free. Many of our area fourth graders may never have the opportunity to see a full-length performance in a beautiful venue like the Topeka Performing Arts Center. Join Ballet Midwest and other community business leaders to help make this wonderful event possible! Benefit Sponsors will receive verbal recognition at the start of the benefit performance and acknowledgment in the Nutcracker program and online.
