Past Spokane Ballet Partnership: Ballet Arts Academy

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Spokane children from Ballet Arts Academy. Ballet Arts Academy is headed by Mimi Ewers. Mimi trained at Ballet Concerto of Miami, Escuela Nacional de Danza in Guatemala, and Escuela Nacional de Danza in El Salvador, with Dr. Jurgen Pagels from Indiana University. Her philosophy is to teach excellence and discipline, to inspire, educate and enrich the life of her students through training and performance of classical and modern ballet. Students of Ballet Arts Academy have attended summer programs all over the nation including: Pacific Northwest Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Orlando Ballet, ABT, Pittsburgh Ballet, Boston Ballet and Next Generation Ballet. Many of these students have gone on to dance professionally for companies like Ballet West, Pittsburgh Ballet, Sarasota Ballet, Peter Schaufuss Balletten, Kansas City Ballet, Ballet Nebraska and Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
