About the Belle Mehus Auditorium

The historic Belle Mehus Auditorium, located in downtown Bismarck, is a treasured jewel within the community. Hosting its first show January 1914, this 452-seat theater has been part of the culture of the area for Italian operettas to film screening, and from classical music to modern ballet. A 966-square foot stage and a 315-square foot orchestra pit bring performances to life as patrons enjoy seating on the main level, in the balcony or in one of the 24 box seats. There is also a Conductor’s room perfect for small receptions before any performance.

25 Years and 2 Generations Strong: Local Ballet Students Perform Side-by-Side with Moscow Ballet Pros in Bismarck on November 28

25 years and 2 generations later, over 75,000 local ballet students, ages 6 to 18 with at least 1 year of ballet training, perform side-by-side with Moscow Ballet pros. In Bismarck, the “Dance with Us”  cast will perform their roles in the Great Russian Nutcracker on Tuesday, November 28, 7:00 pm at Bismarck Event Center this holiday season.

“It was such an amazing opportunity for our young dancers to grow and see how a professional company works...the costumes were breathtaking, says Julia Zhmutski of Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio Julia’s Dance Academy in Oklahoma City. The ballet students, who study at ballet schools in the area, auditioned for Moscow Ballet Audition Director Mariia Skoruk in the fall and rehearsed their roles at the Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio Let’s Dance Studio. The children’s roles are as Party Children, Small Mice, Snowflakes, Snow Sprites, Snow Maidens, and Act II’s Variations of the world’s five great heritages. The experience of auditioning for a professional, rehearsing with the company, being fitted in Moscow Ballet costumes, and performing for a live audience of a thousand or more is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these children!
