Mountain West Ballet is a community based, non-profit organization that preserves, advances and shares the beauty of ballet by providing performing opportunities for aspiring dancers in a professional, nurturing atmosphere, and by offering the community an affordable, quality production for entertainment and educational purposes.
Mountain West Ballet was organized in 1983. We present two ballet productions annually, a spring ballet and the Nutcracker ballet during the holiday season. We hold open auditions twice a year for these productions. Our aim is to use every dancer who auditions, which often results in double or triple casting. Dancers come from throughout Salt Lake County, some even travel from Davis County and Utah County for rehearsals and performances. Approximately 26 dance schools, colleges and universities participate annually with Mountain West Ballet.
