Yellowstone Ballet School History

Yellowstone Ballet Company has been active in promoting arts education and creating original and classic ballets since 1991. This year YBC presents its 28th annual production of The Nutcracker. This production  has been performed in diverse places such as Yellowstone National Park's Map Room, school auditoriums in Livingston, and has toured to large theaters in Bozeman, Great Falls and Lewistown.  

We believe that dance, and ballet in particular, has great communicative power, that it can transcend language barriers and move people. YBC's mission is to CREATE, INSPIRE and EDUCATE. We CREATE original story ballets such as Girls of the Golden West, Hiawatha, Romeo & Juliet of the Rockies, Pinocchio 2010, The Elves & the Shoemaker, The Little Mermaid and Hansel & Gretel ~ with a Twist;  we INSPIRE by producing classical ballets such as The Nutcracker, Giselle, Cinderella, Stars of the Boston Ballet, Swan Lake and La Fille Mal Gardee, and we EDUCATE by providing performance and master class opportunities to our youth and children, allowing them to work side by side with professionals.
