Inside Ballet Fantastique

Welcome to BFan—ballet like you've never seen it before.

We're fresh, we're bold, we're new. We're based in the fiercest Russian traditions of classical dance, but we're forging new stories, a new dance vocabulary, and a new brand of contemporary narrative dance theater. We have great taste in music and we are proud to create and present 100% original work each season.

Our thriving contemporary ballet company » creates, produces, and tours critically-acclaimed new contemporary ballet premieres at our Hult Center home, across the Northwest, nationally, and internationally.. We boldly take ballet out of the box, have a lot of fun, and build new audiences for dance in the process.

And if you like our fresh approach to ballet performance, you'll love our fresh approach to ballet training. Ballet Fantastique's academy » attracts students from across the country, and is unique for its elite Vaganova training, college-educated professional coaches, small class sizes, and uncompromising commitment to excellence. We offer classes for ages 4-professional, and round out our community offerings with our kids' summer camps », relaxed-but-motivated adult drop-in classes », Pilates classes » and contemporary classes .

Our cutting-edge education and outreach » programs give young audiences the opportunity to experience high-caliber dance, both in-school and in-theater. We reach across barriers in access to build the next generation of audiences for dance.
