Ballet Austin Tickets
Throughout the US history, Texans have typically been portrayed as brash and rowdy, characteristically engaging in wrangling and staying far away from activities that have artistic or theatrical overtones. So naturally ballet would be the least thing that one would expect "them cowboys" to take a fancy to. However, Ballet Austin
has served as a living and dancing testament for five decades that Texans can prance, that too classically. Ballet Austin
is more than just a ballet performing company. It also operates one of the premier ballet instruction schools in the United States. Its long-running annual offering of The Nutcracker , one of the most widely performed ballet pieces around the world, has been a staple of the Austin Holiday Season since the company's inception. So don't get left out in the cold and get some Ballet Austintickets
Ballet Austin Tickets Information
Ballet Austin prides itself for having been one of the defining elements of the Austin cultural scene all throughout the latter half of the twentieth century and beyond. It embraces a vision for bringing about democratization in dance by being "classically innovative". Established in 1958, Ballet Austin currently operates out of the Butler Dance Education Center and Community School located in downtown Austin. Ballet Austin is recognized as the being the 15th largest company in the classical ballet community of the US and has off late become the resident ballet company of the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts .
The Ballet Austin Company was built upon the initial success of the Ballet Austin Academy that was established in 1956 and currently imparts ballet instruction to more than 900 students via a five-tiered study structure. The Creative Movement area of study forms the edifice of the ballet evolution of a student, with the Upper School and the Trainee Program serving as the penultimate and the culminating stages. Intensive ballet training commences once a student enters the third level or Lower School , and aims to inculcate the merits of pursing a professional ballet career. All round the year, each student of the Ballet Austin Academy is eligible for being one of the privileged 150 that assist the primary Ballet Austin ensemble and apprentices during productions, especially The Nutcracker.
Over the years, Balltet Austin has been so successful in endearing itself to the community that a second company had to be created. So the eve of the new millennium saw the birth of Ballet Austin II, funded in part through a Ballet Austin Endowment created through the donation received from Sarah and Ernest Butler. Eight "apprentices" having ages ranging from 18-23 are in contract with Ballet Austin II for up to 2 years during which they assist the dancers of the main company in various Ballets as well as performing their own biennial productions of Not Afraid of the Dark and Peter and the Wolf that have been choreographed by Stephen Mills, the Artistic Director of Ballet Austin, as well as Hansel and Gretel that has been choreographed by Nelly Van Bommel. Ballet Austin II provides a unique opportunity to amateur ballet dancers by giving them a feel for the real thing. The apprentices are paid a salary on a weekly basis as well as provided with performance footwear and free healthcare which really comes in handy what with all the sprains, aches and pains that are part and parcel of ballet training, which the apprentices get plenty of. Ballet Austin II graduates either get recruited by the main company or are spirited away by Artistic Directors of ballet companies from across the country, such as Nashville Ballet, Oklahoma City Ballet and Washington Ballet.
Artistic Director Stephen Mills has been with the company for over a decade and has achieved many milestones such as the critically acclaimed The Taming of the Shrew that was commissioned and performed on the stage of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Though Ballet Austin is most known for its staple yuletide offering of The Nutcracker , it has developed an impressive repertoire over the years that includes over a hundred ballet pieces, including all the popular ones such as Don Quixote, La Sylphide, Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, and Romeo & Juliet as well as many other such as Kai, Carmina Burana and Luminaria that have been choreographed by the Mills. So book your Ballet Austintickets now to indulge in tantalizing world class ballet with a certain Texan flavor.
