About American Midwest Ballet


Season announcement

To our AMB family:

While we had a fantastic Season 11 planned, the pandemic has put us in a very difficult position, limiting both our ability to rehearse together and to perform in a theater setting.

While some community activities have resumed, professional dance involves many hours of intense physical activity at close quarters. Putting the safety of our dancers and our community first, we must cancel our performances for the remainder of 2020.

Until we can return to our regular stages – and we will! – we are finding innovative ways to safely share the magic of dance with our community.

Home – Where We Stand


Where We Stand

We have been heartbroken by the losses and pain being experienced in our community and across the country. Everyone deserves to experience full equity and inclusion, regardless of skin color. Black lives matter, and we stand in solidarity with our Black community. It is clear that we all need to listen and work to do more.

We know that dance has the power to inspire, connect, and uplift us. Now more than ever, we’ve dedicated ourselves to listening, reflecting, and working to ensure that people from all walks of life feel included and welcome.
