Enriching the life of your community

Adaptive Dance Class

Programs to inspire children of every age

For nearly 40 years, Lafayette Ballet Theatre has played a significant role as a cultural and educational resource for the citizens of Acadiana. Lafayette Ballet Theatre is committed to the education and development of artists by offering the highest standards of classical ballet training, education and performance. As the community’s premier professional ballet company, Lafayette Ballet Theatre is dedicated to preserving ballet’s rich legacy, making it accessible to all — and providing unprecedented talent, beauty and artistic expression.

As a non-profit organization, the continuation of LBT’s vital programs would not be possible without the generous support of friends and partners. As a supporting member, your tax-deductible gift enables LBT to:

Maintain our 28-week professional employment contracts offered to proficient dancers in our state, as well as providing tuition scholarship programs for pre-professional students.

Preserve the continuation of our educational outreach programs, offering classroom and theater demonstrations for local elementary through high school, free of charge.

Support the underserved through A Night at the Ballet,  providing more than 250 complimentary performance tickets annually to children and their families.

Enrich our community by providing cultural partnerships that benefit our youth. Dance Chance provides 12 weeks of ballet classes without charge to area clubs. Discover Dance, a state-wide educational program for Girl Scouts and Brownie Troops, provides the opportunity to young girls to spend the day with the dancers and directors of LBT during our annual Nutcracker season.

Provide programs to inspire audiences of every age. LBT currently offers 50% discounted tickets to college and high school students 30 minutes prior to curtain; as well as a 50% discount to all students in balcony level seating.
