About Us

Ballet Kelowna
Excellence in Motion

Our Vision: We envision a world in which every life is enriched by the performance and practice of ballet.

Our Mission: Ballet Kelowna brings excellent, inspiring and memorable ballet to Kelowna and the Canadian west.

Our Promise: We showcase excellent ballet, through performances that create lasting positive memories, and foster anticipation for future excellent offerings. Our programs are fun, inspiring, enjoyable, and educational. They include variety and innovation. We present popular works in new ways, and new works in ways that help you increase your enjoyment and understanding of ballet. We showcase the best possible talents in dance – performers and choreographers – including nationally-renowned talent who live in our midst.

You are special to us. In everything that we do we will demonstrate our appreciation of your patronage.
When you call us on the phone, or buy a ticket, or attend our performances, we will provide you with the
highest quality of customer service – because we deeply care.

Ballet Kelowna is a durable and resilient organization. We have overcome challenges to emerge a
stronger, better organization, with a new, sustainable program and business plan that will take us into
the future. More than ever before, we are committed to excellence and the same high standards that
have guided the organization’s programs and performances over the last decade.

Ballet Kelowna is grateful for all of your past support. Your passion and commitment have helped us bring excellent ballet to audiences in Kelowna, throughout the province, and beyond.
We ask that you continue to support us as we start an exciting new chapter in our mission. We promise
to make you a proud partner of a great organization.

What in 2002 seemed like a pipe dream, has blossomed into a “Made in Kelowna” ballet company that is gaining attention across BC and also on the national level with its own, signature repertoire.  The power, grace, beauty and athleticism of our dancers is only achieved through dedication, hard work and a driving commitment to be excellent.  The start-up of a young ballet company that has managed to operate in a fiscally sound way, is only possible with the dedication of talented, visionary believers on both the Staff Team and the Volunteer Corps, including the Board of Directors, working together.  Meet some of our amazing team on the following pages.
