Ballet San Antonio is the city’s premier professional ballet company.
Deeply committed to enriching our community through the splendor of ballet, we showcase the artistry of more than 20 professional dancers who reflect the diversity of South Texas, Latin America and beyond. Our company includes San Antonio natives such as Sarah Pautz, previously an elite company member of Béjart Ballet Lausanne and Ballet Bordeaux in France, and also attracts dancers from across the world.
We are the resident ballet company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, and our artistic vision and growing visibility in the community is reflected in our expanding repertoire. During the 2013-2014 season, Ballet San Antonio will feature four major productions — Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella, The Nutcracker, Firebird and Ballet en La Villita — that highlight the choreography of both local and international artists, and make ballet accessible for all.
As part of our mission to widen our community’s exposure to the arts, Ballet San Antonio cultivates relationships with other area arts organizations. Each season, we present programs in collaboration with groups such as the San Antonio Symphony. We have also partnered with local art galleries to promote art across mediums. Our community performances include Luminaria, the Artist Foundation’s Art Ball and Fiesta events. For the first time, we will offer a free full-length production, Ballet en La Villita, a mixed-repertory production that truly makes ballet available for all audiences.
In addition, our longstanding educational program, Learning That Moves You, brings ballet to thousands of children throughout the community. We also nurture local talent by inviting young dancers to audition and perform in our production of The Nutcracker.
Ballet San Antonio has been reaching up approximately 30,000 members of our community every year, and we are dedicated to raising the barre with each performance and outreach effort. We are Ballet San Antonio, your ballet company.
