Olympic Ballet Theatre


Olympic Ballet Theatre seeks to develop and sustain professional dance, promote dance as a creative performing art, and engage the widest possible audience with a stimulating repertoire of classical contemporary, and dramatic ballets.

After completing the Advanced Certificate from the Royal Academy of Dancing, London, and performing with the Banff Festival Ballet Company, Wilkins accepted a scholarship to study in New York City. Within six months she was touring parts of the country professionally with Marvin Gordon’s Ballet Concepts, performing in summer stock at MusiCarnival in Cleveland, as well as dancing at the Royal Alexander Theatre in Toronto. In Toronto, she choreographed the opera Dido and Aeneas, under Colin Graham of the Sadlers Wells, London. An eight-month tour of Europe followed, including study with Rosella Hightower in Cannes. Upon returning to the U.S. she became ballet mistress of Fort Wayne Ballet and later the Delaware Regional Ballet. She served as school director of the Canton Ballet until coming to Edmonds to found Olympic Ballet Theatre with her late husband, John Wilkins.
