For 50 years, Pacific Northwest Ballet has inspired audiences locally, nationally, and around the world. At home in Seattle, PNB reaches over 200,000 people each year through over 250 performances, conversations, and community education events.
PNB is a leader in the artistic, economic, social, and cultural vibrancy of the Puget Sound region. The PNB you enjoy today will feel both familiar and different. We embark on our 50th Anniversary with a renewed affection for the transcendent experience of live performance, and gratitude to our fans and viewers around the world. PNB is committed to developing new work from new voices while being more representative and inclusive. PNB is the largest employer of artists in our region, proudly employing nearly 600 people each year including a Company of almost 50 dancers, our own PNB Orchestra, a faculty of dance teachers and pianists, costume makers, set builders, painters, choreographers, and more.
From helping PNB fund world premiere works for the stage, to keeping our dancers in pointe shoes through a global pandemic, our Donors keep PNB dancing. After three seasons of pandemic adaptation–PNB is even more committed to the artistry, innovation, and the joy we all share when we gather for dance.
Thank you for joining us for PNB’s bright future.
