Mission Statement

Leigh Purtill Ballet Company (LPBC) offers a ballet experience that:

  • Sharpens the mind
  • Frees the soul
  • Inspires the heart to soar
  • Invigorates the body

We believe ballet is for everyone!


Our vision is to create a community of ballet dancers that is reflective of anyone and everyone who wants to participate.  We cultivate an encouraging and joyful environment which promotes our position that ballet is an art form that is accessible and achievable for anyone. 
Ballet can help to improve self-esteem, make the body stronger, challenge the mind and inspire a person to achieve things they thought were unattainable. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience ballet in their own way and have fun, as a performer and as an audience member.
