Mission

We are a performance ballet company committed to artistic excellence, high-caliber training, and outreach to diverse audiences within the greater San Antonio community. AABT promotes ballet as an art form through innovative choreography and collaborations with local musicians and arts groups.  The company's school provides training for aspiring ballet dancers, offering opportunities to explore both classical and contemporary styles and exposing students to nationally recognized guest instructors and artists through master classes, workshops, and performances.  AABT offers free educational performances and lecture demonstrations to over three thousand public school children yearly and makes ballet accessible through free works-in-progress performances that are open to the public.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

In school Lecture Demonstration

This program involves the dancers, teachers and directors traveling directly to underprivileged schools, four times a year, during the school day. The first of these lecture demonstrations occurred at the Briscoe Academy in 2006. This program consists of a ballet class compressed into 20 minutes and also several demonstrations of both classical ballet and new choreography from AABT’s upcoming season. We considered these outreach programs to be the back bone of the company. The company feels that by allowing youth to get involved in the arts, even in the smallest way, their self confidence, self esteem, and drive in life deepens. This program is always offered free of charge to the schools and students.

Population(s) Served

The Children’s Show matinee occurs prior to each of our biannual performances. Public, private, and home schooled children are invited to be transported directly to the theatre and view a live performance of our upcoming show. These matinee performances are often shortened slightly to fit into the field trip schedules of the school but always include full lighting, makeup and costumes. In many instances, the company choreographs a particular dance to a piece of music from the Music Appreciation List, a list of music they learn in school. This helps to better relate ballet to something they are currently learning. This program, much like the in-school lecture demonstration program, is offered to the schools free of charge. The students are given the opportunity to ask the company members questions directly following the show. Also included is a small meet and greet so the students can get a hands on look at the costumes and makeup the dancers wear. In the past we have entertained as many as 2,000 students yearly with this program.

Population(s) Served

We provide an opportunity annually for young ballet dancers and paid dancers to participate in our original choreography-Alice! A Ballet Wonderland. This provides young dancers with the opportunity to perform with experienced dancers. We also provide ticket prices that are accessible to lower income families-giving them a chance to enjoy a ballet performance-a chance they might not otherwise have.
