Anderson Young Ballet Theatre is pre-professional dance company. Founded in 1974 by Lou Ann Young (featured in photo), AYBT has utilized Anderson’s dancing youth to produce such full length ballets as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, Romeo & Juliet, Cinderella, Giselle, Red Shoes, Swan Lake, Alice in Wonderland, Little Mermaid, and several ballet excerpts.
AYBT is also one of the forerunners in dance for modern and musical theater and is lead under the artistic direction of Jennifer Thiemet. Each season, in addition to the Nutcracker, AYBT performs two additional productions either at the beautiful Anderson Paramount Theater or Reardon Auditorium on the Anderson University campus.
Anderson Young Ballet Theatre, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization committed to bringing the art of dance to the community.
