Welcome!  Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota ("TCB") is an innovative ballet company that creates high-quality, professional performances and meaningful educational opportunities for audiences and participants alike.


TCB is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit dance company that creates, produces, and performs original professional full-length story ballets, a rare and nearly lost art. TCB is the resident dance company of the 1000-seat professional theater, Ames Center (Formerly Burnsville Performing Arts Center).

TCB introduces and promotes the artistry, discipline and athleticism of ballet and other dance forms to Minnesota communities, through performances, educational and interactive programs, Scholarship Awards, and collaborative artistic events. Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and driven by the energy and efforts of dedicated parents, students, volunteers and community sponsors, TCB continues to develop a variety of community outreach initiatives, including working with other arts organizations and schools, and to offer both its participants and audiences the opportunity to experience the enriching world of dance.

TCB's official school, rehearsal and administrative home is at the state-of-the-art facilities of Ballet Royale Minnesota, widely regarded as one of the foremost ballet academies in Minnesota, located on the border of Lakeville and Burnsville, in the heart of the Minneapolis/St. Paul south metro area.
