The Lexington Ballet Company and School aims to nurture better human beings who understand the value of the arts. Not everyone will become a dancer but everyone can benefit from what dance has to offer.
Dance encapsulates what is good and valuable in the human spirit: Kindness, Valor, Empathy, Courage, Beauty, Wisdom, Strength, and all that is beautiful in the human species. Dance embodies these concepts and transmits them first to our students and then to our audience.
Both Nancy and I have been incredibly lucky and have had opportunities to learn from some of the most important figures in the dance world.
It is our responsibility to pass on this transforming information.

Why Lexington Ballet?
The dance education I received at the Lexington Ballet helped me earn a full scholarship through Governor’s School for the Arts to study Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kentucky. This opportunity along with the discipline and focus I learned through my 10 years as a student at LBC allowed me to achieve my goal of working in the space industry.
“I credit my love for teaching dance to the Lexington Ballet. My time at the Lexington Ballet taught me how to love the process of creating art. Classes were always challenging and engaging. Rehearsals were always observed and supported not only by Nancy and Luis, but also by our peers and the younger generations. Performances were always magical. The hard work we had set out to do as a school, as a community, became this final presentation. It was a gift to the city of Lexington that we could not wait to share. I take pride in passing this love on to my students.”
“I love the Lexington Ballet because my teachers are so nice, even though they expect a lot from us. Classes and choreography can be challenging, but are always fun and make me want to do my best.”
