In 2014, Melissa Hahne, the founder of Southwest Ballet Theatre (SWBT), approached Estrella Mountain Community College with the idea to bring something incredible to the West Valley.
Since then, with the support of the community and federal grants, SWBT has brought the highest quality instruction and professional performances and artists to our community.

SWBT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization which strives to enrich, uphold, and bring awareness of classical ballet to the West Valley of Phoenix.
Here is a listing of the Board of Directors.
Community support and federal grants make it possible to bring the highest quality, professional performances and artists to our community.
Please consider donating, to continue bringing the arts into our midst.
