About Us

Emily Fullerton: Artistic Director

Katie Van der Mars: Director of The Conservatory Division



Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School is a place where students are encouraged to think, investigate, and practice the many diverse forms of dance. We as Teachers and artists never forget that our most important goal is to give each individual student the sense of joy and energy that is Dance!

Dance Programs and Divisions

The Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School believes that all children should be given the opportunity to dance, regardless of background, skill level, or genre of interest. We have developed our school in a manner that we feel will encourage all students to excel at his/her own rate, all the while fostering their creative minds.
