Founded in 2008 by Jane Fortune and Robert Hesse to return professional ballet to the area, not just as a performing ballet company, Indianapolis City Ballet was created as an entire ballet program for all the people of the area and beyond. Dynamic initiatives creating an Indianapolis-based company of national and international standing, presenting performances by the finest ballet dancers in the world, providing master classes offered by some of the world’s finest teachers, lecture/demonstrations, national roundtable discussions, films, photographic exhibitions, and events that provide collaborations with other artistic institutions within and outside the dance world, the totality of the program is all-inclusive and energizing. It was determined that the performances produced or presented by the ICB would respect the traditions of classical ballet but would strive toward more contemporary choreography. Incorporated in Indiana as a not-for-profit organization, ICB has been fortunate to find a generous and committed following for its program as it plans the introduction of the Indianapolis City Ballet Company in the near future.
