Ballet Austin Presents

Ballet Austin II

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.

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.

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.

For your safety and for the safety of the performers, we ask that you adhere to the following procedures:

Late seating: As a member of the onstage audience, you must be seated at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the performance. If you are not seated before the performance begins, you may be asked to sit in available seating in the auditorium for the duration of the performance.

All large coats, bags, and other personal items must be placed in coat check prior to the start of the performance in order to keep the seating area and pathways clear.
