Louisville Ballet's mission is to inspire human connection, collaboration, and creativity by making moving art.
Louisville Ballet, led by Artistic + Executive Director Robert Curran, is an evolved, but accessible form of artistic expression that boldly and beautifully communicates stories both classic and new. We exist to move, to evoke emotion, to provoke thought, and to challenge perceptions. We are artists, athletes and activists. We are inventors and inspirers. We have been one of the nation’s leading ballet companies since 1952. As the Official State Ballet of Kentucky, we have hosted some of ballet’s biggest names including Mikhail Baryshnikov, Twyla Tharp and Wendy Whelan, performed for tens of thousand of people and reached over 20,000 school children throughout the commonwealth with educational programs annually.
The JCA Signature Series is a high-impact artist residency program for student enrichment and community enjoyment.
