BalletMet is an American ballet company based in Columbus, Ohio. It is also known as BalletMet Columbus.[1]

The current company came into existence in July 1978, with a $200,000 grant from the Battelle Memorial Institute Foundation. At that time it consisted of three staff and 12 dancers, and soon hired Wayne Soulant as its first artistic director. By 1997, the company had expanded to 25 dancers.[2]
