Mission Statement

The Leigh Purtill Ballet Company is a nonprofit 501(c)3 with the goal of making ballet accessible to everyone: men and women, young and old alike. We’re dedicated to increasing public awareness of and participation in ballet and expand its benefits of physical and mental health. By funding dancers, choreographers, artists, musicians, composers, designers, costumers, and generally creative people, we help bring art and beauty into the world.
We’re building on what’s come before without being constrained by ballet’s traditions in order to make ballet inclusive of all. Our goal is to build this into something bigger than even we could imagine – and we have a pretty big imagination.
