The Kalamazoo Ballet Company is an honor and charter member of the Mid States Regional Dance America and was founded by Therese Bullard in 1969. The company’s artistic philosophy focuses on excellence in professional performance together with fine arts education, coupled with a commitment to developing and maintaining a varied repertoire consisting of traditional Irish, Highland and national dance. Its current repertoire includes Alice in Wonderland, Dracula, and yet to be premiered Jane Eyre; all created by Ms. Bullard and jointly choreographed with August Tye. In addition, under the direction of Ms. Buullard, the company stages the following compressed ballets: Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Nutcracker and Coppelia, Act 2 (set by Valerie Roche), and many award winning works by resident choreographer and associate artistic director, August Tye. The director and the Kalamazoo Ballet Board of Directors are appreciative of the support provided by The Arcus Gay and Lesbian Foundation, the Irving S Gilmore Foundation, the Plaza Arts Circle, the Monroe-Brown Foundation, the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo and the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs.
