Missouri Contemporary Ballet (MCB) is a not-for-profit professional dance company that creates and presents world-class productions and educational opportunities through the art of contemporary ballet.
We serve the community through:
- Exceptional & Innovative Performances
- The School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet
- Outreach & Education Programs/Partnerships
Celebrating our twelfth season, MCB is distinguished as the only professional dance company in mid-Missouri, where we are a pillar of the arts community.
Our company is known for its athletic and high impact performances, providing audiences – in the theater and at venues throughout the region – with a thrilling and fulfilling experience.
Our school is distinguished as the only not-for-profit dance school in the area and the only one that offers instruction exclusively from professional dancers.
In collaboration with local partners, we implement a variety of programs to ensure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to pursue and experience the art of dance. Our outreach efforts focus on at-risk and underserved youth, people with special needs, and the elderly.
We are based in the city of Columbia, home of the University of Missouri and a thriving arts scene. Our resident stage is the magnificent and historic Missouri Theatre, and we are a part of the distinguished University of Missouri Concert Series.
