Ballet Austin II
@ AVST

Ballet Austin II performs a mixed repertory program in the AustinVentures StudioTheater.

Napoli Pas de Six
Choreography by August Bournonville

Music by Edvard Helsted
Choreographed in 1842 with music by Edvard Helsted, the pas de six from Napoli is one of the Danish choreographer's most beloved works. The intricate footwork, buoyant jumps and joyous musical phrasing embody Bournonville's signature style.

Luminaria
Choreography by Stephen Mills

Music by Jordi Savall
Originally commissioned by the San Antonio Luminaria Festival in 2011 and featuring Jordi Savall's exotic compilation of Spanish New World baroque music, this playful and romantic contemporary ballet explores the intricate relationship between dance, vocal, and instrumental rhythms.

Wavemakers
Choreography by Jennifer Hart

Music by John Adams
This world premiere by Jennifer Hart was initially developed by a Fellowship Initiative Grant from the New York Choreographic Institute, an affiliate of New York City Ballet. Hart and Ballet Austin were one of only three choreographic collaborations selected for this honor during the 2011-12 season. Set to John Adams' Shaker Loops, Wavemakers soars from serenity to turbulence, reflecting the expansive and reverential layers of Adams' evocative score.
