School and Ballet Company

Maine State Ballet is a dance school and ballet company whose mission is to uplift the Maine community through inspiring dance education and performance. The dance studio was established ca. 1920 and offers year-round dance classes in classical ballet, jazz, tap, and musical theater. Advanced ballet students have the unique opportunity to be trained in the Balanchine Technique® and Balanchine Style®. Maine State Ballet alumni have gone on to the School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theater, National Ballet of Canada, Miami City Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, Radio City Music Hall, Broadway, and film.

The Maine State Ballet Company, established in 1986, is one of Maine's leading professional dance companies. With dozens of ballets in its repertoire, it offers an annual season of over 30 performances to more than 10,000 patrons.

In 2004, the school and ballet company merged to become a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the name Maine State Ballet.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Good health and well-being - we strive to create a culture of health and well-being through our dance programs, training, and performances.

Clean energy and sustainability/production and consumption - We are retrofitting all lights to LED and installing sustainable heat pumps.

Decent work and economic growth/sustainable cities and communities - We provide a safe, healthy, and enjoyable workplace with a living wage and benefits for our team members. We partner with other arts organizations and local charities to provide access to the arts.



We are using our assets and grants to build a more sustainable infrastructure and pay our employees a living wage. By attracting excellent staff, we create the environment for a healthy workplace for staff and dancers.

We will have retrofitted all LED lights and heat pumps needed for a more sustainable workplace by the end of 2023.
