Be Part of the Magic
As a local nonprofit, the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company has been creating magic on the stage since 1992. Your generous support makes it possible for us to continue to bring classical stories like the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Snow White and more to the stage and to life. Perhaps you know Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company best because of the beloved holiday favorite, the Nutcracker. Nearly 200 local young dancers perform on the Lied stage every year to a live orchestra along with nationally known guest artists. Your donation will help ensure that the art of ballet remains an essential part of our community for generations to come.

The cast of Snow White is made up of talented, young, local dancers who are selected by audition. East High School senior, Olivia Etherton, will dance as Snow White and East High School junior, McKaylee True, will dance as the Evil Queen.

When Jen Smith was a young girl, she danced in the famous holiday ballet, The Nutcracker, several times. Now her daughter, Olivia, is stepping into her mother’s ballet slippers and participating in the ballet.
Backstage at the Ballet is LMBC's artist-in-residence program . This year, it was held at Brownell Elementary School during the last week of November. The ballet company hosted three learning stations for each class that provided hands-on learning experiences in costuming, make-up and choreography. On the final day of the residency, LMBC dancers performed excerpts from The Nutcracker for the entire school. Students, teachers and administrators were delighted!
