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 Show Must Go On” has been a running theme for the Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company’s 2020 production of “The Nutcracker.” Postponed from December due to high COVID-19 numbers in Lancaster County, the holiday classic will take Lied Center stage Saturday and Sunday, March 6-7.

Each year, one Lincoln Public Schools elementary school is chosen to participate in "Backstage at the Ballet," an artist-in-residency program . . . This year, the ballet company visited Lakeview Elementary School.

Jarrod Ronhovde and Hilary Johnson both danced in the original production of "The Nutcracker" 35 years ago and this year, their children both followed in their footsteps.
