Artistic Director Stephen Mills exploded onto the Austin arts scene during the 1999-2000 season, eventually landing his current role, attracting attention across the country with his world-premiere production of Hamlet, featuring the music of Philip Glass. The show returned for the 2015 season. Mills' sinewy, sexy, (and not infrequently, sassy) work can be seen in the upcoming Snow White or in the perennially popular Nutcracker. The company doesn't just keep audiences on the edge of their seats, they also make Austin dance positively interactive. Visit them once and you will see, from baby ballerinas doing pliés and tendus to Pilates professionals doing twists and reaches. The studios are massive, as is the schedule of classes and workshops. Whether you are interested in ballet, hip-hop, hula, jazz, or simply just working out, Ballet Austin spreads the love of dance and invites the public in.
