Our Mission at the
West Michigan Youth Ballet...
To provide an opportunity for young people to work under the direction of professional choreographer, as they prepare and present full-length ballets to the public.
To enhance the skills that these dancers receive through the study of ballet at their respective academies, as they experience the full preparation of a ballet performance, from inception to the stage performance.
To encourage young people to consider a career in dance and assist them in moving toward this goal, either in a professional dance capacity or by studying dance at a university level.
A letter from our Artistic Director
As West Michigan Youth Ballet continues to enrich, inspire, and grow the next generation of dancers, I am excited to share in the artistic direction of this wonderful youth company. I truly believe West Michigan is one of the best places in the country to raise a family, and the dance family involvement at West Michigan Youth Ballet helps to give this region the positive reputation that it has. I am honored to work with these dancers, hoping to impart my vision for them to become the best version of themselves in life and on stage. I look forward to sharing my positive performing experience with these dancers, in turn, I hope to provide them with a similar encounter with the stage. We hope to guide them to enrich the community, inspire other dancers, and grow into the best versions of themselves.
Thank you for the privilege,
