The mission of Galveston Ballet is to offer the young people of Galveston County the opportunity to participate in a learning company where they can experience the discipline and beauty of ballet (and develop their skills and talents); and to enrich the cultural life of the entire community by presenting performances of great classical and contemporary works each year.

Galveston ballet's current programs include Training, Performance, Community Education, and Scholarship. Galveston Ballet currently offers classes for ages three through adult. The members of the performing company study technique ten hours per week. Galveston Ballet also offers a variety of summer programs including 'Fairy Tale Camp' for students 4-6, Summer Intensive for teenagers and adults, and has hosted a Russian Workshop with guest artists.

Galveston Ballet presents one full-length classical ballet in the spring of each year and one mixed repertory program each fall. Both performances are held at The Grand 1894 Opera House.

Galveston Ballet's Dance in Schools program seeks to educate and enhance the quality of life for Galveston's public school students. Through lecture, demonstration, hands-on activities and performance, Dance in Schools introduces students to classical and contemporary ballet, seeking to create an appreciation for the fine art of dance.

Needs-based and work study scholarships may be available. Galveston Ballet strives to be in a financial position where no child wanting to dance will be turned away.
