Welcome to our Ballet MN and CBA alumni! The Classical Ballet Academy of Minnesota school was incorporated in 1987 by Andrew and Cheryl Rist, followed by their founding of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Ballet Minnesota company in 1990. In the combined 30 year history of this two organization partnership, a rich legacy of rigorous ballet training and artistic excellence has been established, including annual performance of the Classic Nutcracker, restaging of many classical ballets by Cheryl Rist, and introduction of original works choreographed by Andrew Rist–all featuring hundreds of guest artists and CBA students. Please join us in the Alumni Circle as we prepare to celebrate our 30th Season, including special invitations to alumni events!
