Our commitment is to the ongoing creation and performance of new works that explore thoughtful ideas and stories and ultimately connect audiences to breathtaking dance.
“Art has the power to reach people's emotions in ways that other forms of communication can't. If you are unconvinced on the power or importance of the arts, specifically dance, I challenge you to attend ANY Ballet 5:8 performance, and see if your perspective shifts.” - Company Artist, Laura Peterman
“Butterfly tells a story in history that must never be forgotten - one that, though marked by irreversible evil and suffering, is a story that cries out that true hope can never be stolen.” - Company Artist, Jessica Lohr
“The music and choreography are beautifully joyous, so capturing that emotion only feels natural in this piece.” - Company Artist, Jessica Lohr
