Mission Our mission is to:
- Create new ballets of excellence that are stimulating and culturally relevant to diverse audiences.
- Create an innovative approach to ballet training that welcomes diversity, and ensures unanimous participation and achievement by all students.

Description Founded in 1986, the organization has gained a distinctive reputation for its innovative programming, artistic excellence, and extensive community outreach. After recently signing a 41-year lease with the National Historic Landmark Old Cambridge Baptist Church in Harvard Square, JMBT started a renovation project to transform this architectural gem into a world-class dance and performance space.
