Sophisticated, contemporary choreography combines the graceful lines of classic ballet with cutting edge artistry, which makes each production unique!

Beautiful costumes, well-trained professional dancers, outstanding sets and backdrops, along with world-class artistic direction, are evident throughout the varied repertoire that includes contemporary jazz as well as classical ballet. Audience favorites such as The Nutcracker, Cinderella, and the Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Andersen all have an educational component associated with them. BQC provides a strong commitment to artistic excellence. The dancers of BQC have been described as "razor sharp, way cool, sweet and sassy." The ballet company itself was labeled as an "arts miracle" in the Quad Cities. The entire family will have an unforgettable experience at one of BQC's performances.
