About Director’s Choice
Escape the madness of March with three gorgeous dance works, featuring contemporary choreography, classical scores and a touch of tango!
One / the body’s grace, choreographed by Stephen Mills, is a sensuous exploration of the various stages of relationships. The stunning and athletic choreography features arias by Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel.
Ballet Austin welcomes to the Long Center stage the first Company commission by award-winning choreographer Jennifer Hart. Experience the world premiere of this rising star, who in 2011 was awarded a New York City Ballet Fellowship and was selected as a finalist for the Saint-Sauveur International Choreography Competition, in Canada.
Jimmy Orrante, Princess Grace Award winner (2014-2016), was a participant in Ballet Austin’s 2014 New American Talent / Dance choreographic competition and will be presenting a new work as the Choreography Mentorship Co-Commission (CMCC) Award winner.
