Ballet Austin

With a rich history spanning six decades and critically acclaimed productions staged in the United States, Europe and the Middle East, Ballet Austin and Artistic Director/Choreographer Stephen Mills invite audiences to experience classically innovative dance works that are as distinctive and dynamic as the artists who create them. Ballet Austin represents a professional company of 21 full-time dancers, recruited from an annual 30-city audition tour, led by Mills who is now in his 15th season as artistic director.

Ballet Austin has participated in international festivals, including Les Rencontres Chorégraphiques internationals de Seine-Saint-Denis in Paris, France, and Le Festival des arts de Saint-Sauveur in Montreal, Canada. In 2005, the company was invited by the U.S. State Department to perform in Italy and Slovenia. In 2002, the company performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream to seven sold-out houses at the Kennedy Center, after which Mills was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to create The Taming of the Shrew for a 2004 world premiere. The following year, the company was invited to perform a week-long engagement at The Joyce Theater in New York City.
