Ensemble Ballet Theatre (EBT), located in Maple Valley, Washington, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the cultural enrichment of the community through the dance arts.
EBT was formed in 2002 with a mission to educate, promote, foster and encourage interest in all forms of dance to the general public, through full scale, large, professional style ballet productions. These productions are an affordable way to introduce children to the dance arts in a local venue accessible to students, families, and the elderly.
About The PD
Ensemble Ballet Theatre's large-scale performances are a collection of ballet classics and original productions: our annual production of the Nutcracker in December and a different story ballet each May.
EBT rehearsals, performances, master classes and costumes are free to the dancers with only a nominal annual membership fee required. This allows membership by all qualified dancers and, therefore, does not exclude anyone based on their ability to pay for expenses.
Additionally, EBT operates and depends entirely on parent volunteers and is funded by ticket sales, fundraising, sponsorships and donations.
Auditions to join our Performance Division occur each May, with an additional opportunity to audition in late summer for the upcoming year.
Current members must audition every year. This process ensures not only ongoing experience in preparing for and participating in auditions, but also provides an opportunity for existing company dancers to level up within the organization.
