The vision for Petra was birthed out of a desire to see the name of Jesus lifted up through excellence in the arts within the community of Springfield. Jason and Kim founded Petra Ballet Company in January of 2008. Jason serves as Executive Director of Petra; Kim as Artistic Director, Resident Choreographer and Company Dancer.
Company members include dancers from across the United States. All dancers are professionally trained and desire to use their gift of dance to bring glory to the Lord. With a strong background in classical ballet technique, the company has a contemporary flare and uses all forms of dance in performance. The company performs locally as well as touring nationally. Petra Ballet Company is a non-profit organization.
