Ballet Quad Cities invites students to join us for special educational matinée performances. Our mission is to provide the experience of fully-produced performances of world-class ballet with elaborate costumes and scenery for a minimal cost for students – a magical experience they will never forget! To enhance this live ballet experience, we also offer an in-school pre-performance educational program that includes engaging activities for the classroom. 

Due to funding, pricing for student matinees has changed from last season.  Please email or call Amanda Aunan for information.

Paper tickets are not issued for student matinées.  After recieving pricing, submit your on-line 
registration form, and send a check to 613 17th Street, Rock Island, IL 61201.  You will receive an email confirmation after both your registration and check are received.  The day of the performance you will check in with a Ballet Quad Cities' staff member for your seats.
Please note that the student matinees are for grade-school aged and older students only.  We are not funded for preschool and younger.
