It is the mission of Savannah Ballet Theatre to develop and showcase the talent of dedicated Savannah dancers and to engage in educational outreach and promotion of the art of dance within our community

Currently celebrating its 20th season, Savannah Ballet Theatre (SBT) was established in 1998 under the artistic direction of Suzanne Braddy. Recognized as the premiere dance company in Southeast Georgia, SBT is best known locally for its annual production of the perennial holiday favorite, The Nutcracker. Using WWII-era Savannah as the backdrop, it is an event that has become a tradition for the community and one that honors the history and unique character of the region. SBT presents a full season of classical and contemporary dance and has staged productions of Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Peter Pan, an original adaptation based on C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Wizard of Oz, The Little Mermaid and most recently, Sleepy Hollow.
