Since 2009, Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre has provided cultural outreach in the Phoenix community encouraging a love of dance, ballet history and performance. Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre presents an annual production of “The Nutcracker Suite” and a Spring Ballet concert either as classical repertory or an original contemporary work.

PYBT students have the opportunity to perform with professional guest artists from around Arizona as well as participate in master class training from professionals from companies such as, American Ballet Theatre, Shaping Sound Dance Company and Ballet Arizona.

Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre’s success and program funding relies on our community support, fundraising, grants and volunteers.
