Performance History

[text_output]Ballet Northwest began producing shows at The Evergreen State College in 1970 and now performs at The Washington Center for The Performing Arts. Our season is anchored by The The Nutcracker each winter, while spring productions currently fall into a four-year cycle.

If you have any information about early Ballet Northwest productions, we’d love to hear from you! Please email us.
