Garden City Ballet is not a typical ballet company… we do not operate a dance school, employ dancers year-round, tour the country, have a musical director, or perform with a live orchestra.
Our nonprofit organization is truly unique — with an average cast size of more than 100 local dancers, professional guests performing the lead roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier, a dedicated Board, part-time staff, rotating artistic team, generous donors, and countless volunteer parents, we proudly bring The Nutcracker to life — year after year!

Interested in board service?
The GCB board is always recruiting new members — from our pool of current and former Nutcracker parents, alumni dancers, and the greater Missoula community. Elections are held in July. Email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to tell you more!
What is expected of board members?
Board service is very different from volunteering for The Nutcracker production — the focus of board work is on governance, finance, fundraising, and strategic planning.
What experience is required?
Board members ideally (but not necessarily!) have prior experience serving on a nonprofit board — most important, however, is that you enjoy working collaboratively, believe in GCB’s mission, and have a desire to pay it forward with what you have, know, or are able to access.
