Incorporated in 1964, Community Ballet Association (CBA), Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that encompasses Huntsville Ballet School and Huntsville Ballet Company. CBA is North Alabamas premier dance organization and only professional ballet company.

CBA believes the true purpose of arts education is not solely to create more professional artists. Its to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, and who can lead productive lives. To that end, CBA has been a pillar of the regions arts community for 59 years widening exposure to the arts through performances, dance education, community outreach, and special programs for diverse audiences.

A strong arts community is critical to the growth and development of a city. Research has demonstrated that a high concentration of the arts in a city leads to greater civic engagement, stronger social cohesion, lower poverty rates, and the greater well-being of children. This year, CBA will reach more than 20,000 children and adults through performance, education, and outreach. 

CBA was honored in 2020 with both the Huntsville-Madison County Chamber’s Best Non-Profit of the Year Award as well as Madison City Chamber’s award for Best Organization in the Arts, Entertainment & Hospitality Category. As we continue to grow as a center for educational and artistic excellence in North Alabama, we enhance the quality of life for the community and those seeking to make North Alabama home.

CBA thanks you for your patronage and for recognizing the importance of the arts in our community. As a non-profit performing arts organization, our continued growth and success directly reflect the creative, enterprising, and invincible spirit of the growing city of Huntsville.
