Step Into Our World
The mission of Ballet is 5:8 is to employ artistic ingenuity, innovation and excellence as we celebrate the exchange of ideas in the creative realm. Our ongoing commitment is to the creation and performance of new, abstract and narrative works from the unique basis of our Christian faith, and to the development and creative exploration of the dancing artists, choreographers and composers of our day. Our goal is to serve as a catalyst for genuine discussion of life and faith with audiences and artists alike, in the context of breathtaking dance performance.
Because of our ongoing commitment is to the creation and performance of new, abstract and narrative works from the unique basis of our Christian faith, we are regularly adding new works to our repertoire. Click below to learn about each of the different ballets.

Each season, we have the privilege of adding new performances to our history. Some performances grow into annual traditions that we return to year after year, but many others take place in new venues and cities, engage new audience members, and employ a mix of new and old repertoire as Ballet 5:8 continues to grow. Performances range from those that took place in traditional theaters to many nontraditional performances in gyms, on church stages, and even outdoors! We are privileged to be able to celebrate the memory of each of these distinct and varied performances here - and we look forward to adding more and more to the list with each performing season.
