    While the other answer tells of ballet companies and pantomimes ( almost any genre of dance was called ballet back then) visiting America (some even before there was a USA) the first actual American ballet company was founded by George Balanchine and called “the American Ballet.”  There were ballet schools in America in the mid 1800s too, but you asked about the first ballet company not school in the USA. I was assuming you meant one of our own not visiting companies and performers.
