“Our research has shown that a thriving arts and entertainment scene is important to business retention and expansion. We are fortunate to have Ballet West and many other organizations contributing to Utah’’s vibrant arts scene.”
— Theresa Foxley, President & CEO, Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah)

Entering its 55th season, Ballet West is one of America’s most prominent and respected ballet companies. Willam Christensen’s Nutcracker is the longest running production in the United States. In 2017, a new $3 million production premiered to rave reviews. To succeed, Ballet West relies on support from all members of the community. By donating to Ballet West, you are not only supporting the main company, you are also supporting the Academy, and Education and Outreach programs. With more than 100,000 followers on social media, Ballet West’s community is the world (the largest number of followers amongst Utah’s performing arts organizations). In addition, Ballet West is looking to the future, enhancing the position Utah as a destination for art.
