Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre

We as a company have performance opportunities that are available with the Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre. The theatre gives us and you a great chance to expose the live ballet-theatre environment to theatre new comers, and theatre lovers of all ages. Our auditions for the Ballet Theatre are open to all intermediate and advanced level students ages 9-18. This non-profit company performs an annual full-length ballet production as well as holding an elementary school outreach-touring program.

One of our goals is for each of our talented students to feel comfortable and at home with us at all times. We want each student to have the choice to grow in whichever way they choose to, and be proud of their efforts and progress. Along with these goals, we want the students that decide to build a career to have a great foundation behind them, and for us to be a part of that foundation. If what we do as a company, team, and family is an interest to you or a passion of yours, we welcome you to come join us!



Gala en Pointe

Enjoy an enchanting night of music, dance, delicious cuisine and fun while supporting the Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre.

West Bay Shore Drive in Traverse City. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The event’s theme reflects this season’s Spring production of Scenes From A Park, to be presented March 16, 2019 at the Dennos Museum Center–Milliken Auditorium.

Festivities for the evening include enticing hors d’ouevres prepared by The Cook’s House plus local wine, beer and cider. A fundraising silent auction and raffle will also be held during the event.

Dancers from NMBT will perform excerpts from the ballet, which features original choreography and stunning original costumes. Afterward, there will be a ballroom dance lesson taught by artistic director Thomas Morrell followed by an open dance featuring The Acme Jazz Project.
