Ballet Hawaii has been enriching Hawaii's cultural environment by teaching, promoting and producing dance since 1976. Originally a support group for the Honolulu City Ballet, this non-profit organization provides opportunities for self-growth, while instilling self-esteem and pride in its students, patrons and audiences. Its classes are focused on building self-confidence through accomplishment, while its presentations of world-class performances provides the community with the priceless gift of professional quality dance.

Toward its mission of presenting, promoting and developing dance in Hawaii, Ballet Hawaii:

  • produces an annual Nutcracker Ballet at the Blaisdell Concert Hall
    with accompaniment by the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra and guest
    artists from leading international ballet companies.
  • presents highly acclaimed dance companies that have included
    Baryshnikov & Co., Stars of American Ballet Theatre, Mark Morris
    Dance Group, Pilobolus, Paul Taylor Dance Theatre, Ballet Stars from
    San Francisco and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo.
  • provides a year-round training program for pre-ballet through
    advanced students.
  • engages international Master Teachers to teach at the intermediate and
    advanced levels.
  • conducts a four week Summer Intensive session, featuring teachers from
    the international dance community and attracts students from
    around the world.
  • provides outreach programs throughout the community and neighbor
    islands to reach new audiences and create more interest in dance.
