We had heard Orlando Ballet School was awarded "Outstanding School in the WORLD" recently by the prestigious International Youth America Grand Prix. After attending the Orlando Ballet Nutcracker performances, we also saw Romeo and Juliet.This is an amazing gem in the city of Orlando!!! Bravo!!!

My dear friend and I went for a night of ballet and since then I have simply adored the idea of going back. It was a great chance to dress up for a reasonable price. The production was fascinating, the costuming and make up were delightful and the atmosphere was nice.

I live in Europe and have seen many productions at the Royal Opera House, and in Paris's opera house, and I must say, when I saw the opening night production of Orlando Ballet's The Nutcracker in December at the Bob Carr, I was blown away - this company is as good as, or even better in some ways, to what...

We have a standing family tradition, we all get dressed up, and go to the ballet, and enjoy a nice dinner in downtown Orlando every year

I've been taking my daughter to the family series ballet since she was 4 - we particularly love the Nutcracker every year. The family series is great because you get the best parts of the ballet truncated to a 1 hour performance - terrific for kids!

Very low budget - I am from Cleveland, so I am spoiled with a world-class ballet - this is more like a high school performance. Small stage, often no set at all except colored lights, cheap costumes. I used to get free tickets from donors and with so little art/culture in this area compared to where I grew up I... More

We like to take the family, with children ages 10, 14 and 16, at least once a year, especially to see the Nutcracker during the Christmas holiday.

We attended the Battle of the Sexes during Arts Fest 2012. This is more cutting edge ballet (read no tutus). Very athletic choreography to pulsating music. It was absolutely riveting. Part of our group had never seen a ballet before and they were totally thrilled by the experience. So whether you are a traditionalist or a newbie, try to catch... More

For something beautiful and different the Orlando ballet is an enjoyable and cultural experience. Reasonably priced their performances are always well received by the Orlando community. Try to catch one of their performances, especially with the children.
