What is BBB?

ROCKY MOUNTAIN BALLET THEATRE celebrates their 20th Anniversary Season and the world Premiere of “Triple B – Ballet Beyond Borders” January 9 – 13, 2018. The BBB Grand Prix Dance Challenge incorporates excellence in ballet with all forms of dance expression and presents world class dance talent for five days in Missoula, Montana, where we are deeply connected to nature. Our dance challenge serves to inspire artists and help each dancer reach the core of what that represents.

BBB embraces the changing landscapes of our global dance art form. While excellence is our goal, we also seek to preserve the heritage we passionately share. We will strive to improve, protect, inspire, and connect the next generation of young artists with professionals of the highest caliber and with mentors that align with these ideals. Dance is a cultural phenomenon and dancers are natural diplomats, so Ballet Beyond Borders is a Ballet Nation that serves as a catalyst for promoting cooperation and easing conflict by creating mutual understanding and using dance to advocate for human rights, justice, and global peace.

BBB is open to professional and amateur dancers and students from all around the world and offers daily workshops, stage experience, cultural programs and a diplomacy conference in addition to the competition.

BBB participants mark their footprints along a lesser known trail. Come to a quiet and picturesque ballet neighborhood and connect with a community aligned with your core values. BBB presents you with an opportunity to leave your footprints on a global stage. BALLET BEYOND BORDERS is an OPEN land, with an OPEN heart and an OPEN dialogue. Please bring your dances and your stories, your technique, and your artistry to our ballet nation and western frontier.
