For the past 35 years, Lafayette Ballet Theatre has played a significant role as a cultural and educational resource for the citizens of Acadiana. Lafayette Ballet Theatre is committed to the development of artists, by offering the highest standards of classical ballet training, education and performance. As the community's premier professional ballet company, Lafayette Ballet Theatre is dedicated to preserving ballet's rich legacy, making it accessible to all, and providing unprecedented talent, beauty, and artistic expression.
In the last year, Lafayette Ballet Theatre (LBT) has been exploring options to address the growing needs of the community. LBT has worked with Geoff Gjertson, AIA to design a facility to serve LBT, and the community. With this design and a proposed cost, we are assembling our fund raising team pursuing this vision. Please help secure the future of the performing arts in our community!
