Spokane Ballet Ensemble

The Spokane Ballet Ensemble is a non-profit performing arts organization providing pre-professional dance students with classical ballet training, performance opportunities and being a part of the enrichment of the greater Spokane Community through educational and entertaining productions.

In the past years, SBE dancers performed internationally touring in London, Paris, Russia, Denmark, Spain, Morocco, Australia and Fiji. Former SBE dancers have gone on to professional ballet careers dancing with companies such as the Pacific NW Ballet, Nevada Ballet Theater and the Disney Corporation. Some SBE dancers are now studying dance at universities nationwide and others are teaching dance across the country, as well as, here at the Dance Center of Spokane!

SBE School Performances

For the past 30 years, SBE has been staging quality ballet performances at area elementary schools. Elementary school gymnasiums are transformed into theaters, complete with special flooring, backdrops, sound systems, wings, and lighting. SBE has performed for nearly every elementary school in the greater Spokane area, including some of the Coeur D’Alene schools. There are currently four performances each school year, reaching hundreds of children at each school.

These past years we have proudly contributed to Spokane’s  Second Harvest Food Bank with performances from our repertoire, which includes, The Nutcracker, Coppelia, Les Patineurs, La Fille Mal Gardee, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Paquita, and Peter and the Wolf.
