Durham Ballet Theatre 

Welcome! Durham Ballet Theatre believes the performing arts are gifts meant to be shared with everyone in the community, and we strive to implement that belief in all aspects of our company.

We take pride in the fact that our company is very diverse; we cast solely from auditions which are open to the public. We aim to see more performers of diverse ethnic backgrounds and varied abilities find their way to performing with our company. Our company and its culture differ from others in our area in that we also welcome and encourage non-professional adults and children ages 3 and older to perform in our productions.

Durham Ballet Theatre does not discriminate on the basis of age, citizenship, color, disability, gender identity or expression, race, religion, creed, national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation or status as a disabled veteran, or veteran of any war era.
