Houston Ballet


Founded in 1969, Houston Ballet is an internationally acclaimed ballet company which is now America's fifth largest. The company is comprised of 59 dancers and has toured extensively to critical praise in Europe, the United Kingdom, Asia, Canada, and in cities throughout the United States. The company's home is the magnificent Wortham Theater Center, a state-of-the-art facility in which the company currently performs over 81 performances seven months out of the year. In February of 2011, Houston Ballet moved into its new Center for Dance located at 601 Preston and connected to The Wortham Theater Center by skybridge. This state-of-the-art facility is the largest center dedicated solely to dance in the U.S. Houston Ballet Academy has an enrollment of 691 students, between the ages of 3 through 60, and more than half of the professional company's dancers have come from the ranks of the academy.
