Our Mission:

Midwest Ballet Theatre, a not-for profit corporation, is a pre-professional ballet company dedicated to the excellence in the performance of classical ballet. The Company seeks to develop in its members poise, strength, and a sense of dedication and discipline in a mutually supportive, non-competitive environment. MBT endeavors to promote an awarenes of, and an appreciation for, the art of classical ballet throughout the community.

The Company developed a consistently high standard of excellence in technique, interpretation and expression, as well as the dancers' individual personal growth. In 1993, the name of the Company was changed to Midwest Ballet Theatre, and a not for profit corporation was formed.

Comprised of advanced dancers who rehearse at the Midwest Ballet Academy, Midwest Ballet Theatre performs before enthusiastic audiences in Chicago's western suburbs at the historic 1000-seat Tivoli Theatre in downtown Downers Grove.
