Ballet Theatre of Ohio

2018 - 2019 Season


The Meneer School of Dance is home to BALLET THEATRE OF OHIO (BTO).  BTO is a pre-professional ballet company. For our various productions, we utilize an additional 50-60 children from our dance school each year.  Our dancers have the opportunity to partner with and dance on the same stage as seasoned professionals.  Below are the two upcoming shows for the 2018 - 2019 season.

Annual Production of The Nutcracker


The Nutcracker ballet, performed at the Akron Civic Theatre, has been a holiday tradition for families in Northeast Ohio for the past 25 years. We are excited to present Nutcracker for the 26th consecutive season. Performances will be held on November 24th & 25th, 2018 as well as December 1st & 2nd, 2018.



We are thrilled to bring back our production of Copellia on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 2:00 PM & 7:00 PM and Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 2:00 PM.
