Makaroff Youth Ballet (MYB) is a non-profit youth ballet company serving the people of the Fox Valley and surrounding communities. Our mission is to make the fine art of ballet performance accessible to the community through its talented young dancers.

Makaroff Youth Ballet is comprised of advanced and dedicated young dancers from the Fox Valley and surrounding communities, such as Wrightstown, Green Bay, Kaukauna, Little Chute, Appleton, Menasha, Neenah, Oshkosh, Waupaca, and Hortonville. Our focus is to provide our dancers with superior ballet training and pre-professional performance experience. By doing so, we also provide the public with the wonderful opportunity to see our youth in high quality and unique performances.

MYB is made up of 15-20 dancers ranging in age from 12 - 18 years old. We present two major performances each season, showcasing original choreography by Jeanette Makaroff. We also appear throughout the community in workshops and parades.

We are proud to continue the legacy of excellence in ballet that was started by Nikolai and Juanita Makaroff in 1960. Today, their daughter, Jeanette Makaroff, continues her family's rich legacy as our Artistic Director.

Makaroff Youth Ballet is especially proud to have an Artistic Director that has had authentic, classical conservatory ballet training as well as an authentic professional ballet performance career.
