THE COMPANY - Original, collaborative, professional productions by full-time Company and Apprentice Artists.

THE SCHOOL - Wholesome, high-quality ballet and dance education in a nurturing and welcoming environment.

THE COMMUNITY - Accessible dance experiences for individuals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.


Our mission for this organization is to create, develop and inspire artists and communities through collaboration with the art of ballet. For the artists and staff of Ballet Co.Laboratory, collaboration has always been the pulse of art learning and creation, so we would like to put it in the forefront. Dance and art is about experimenting, trying new things and making the impossible come to life. The studio is an experimental, collaborative laboratory of possibilities. The School and Company of Ballet Co.Laboratory will create a nurturing, safe space to explore all of these possibilities and continue to train and experience the technique and art of ballet.

Ballet, and dance in general, is not only a technique of movement but an expression of ourselves. Learning the art of ballet and dance is a life-long journey, whether one is pursuing a professional career or simply the freedom to move. For this reason, Ballet Co.Laboratory will offer ballet and movement classes for all ages, all abilities, and all backgrounds. Our Term and Drop-In programs will be led by the Twin Cities finest instructors including Deborah Nettell, Jeffrey Hankinson, Anna Goodrich as well as Company Artists from the professional company.

At Ballet Co.Laboratory we create a community that is accessible and welcoming to all. We look forward to sharing dance with you. Together we can create, develop and inspire through ballet.
