A huge thanks to Nancy Wozny for highlighting our Artistic Director Stephen Mills in CultureMap Houston’s “The art of nurturing new choreographers: It’s not sexy, but it’s the only way to move.” The article quotes Stephen:

“My belief is that art in the 21st century centers around illuminating the world in which we live. Simply linking existing steps together is not rigorous enough to accomplish that task. In selecting choreographers, our team seeks to identify those people who are working to create new movement vocabularies; we look for artists who challenge dance structure as we understand it today.”

Ballet Austin’s New American Talent/Dance competition is Feb 17-19. It’s a great way to catch new works from three of the nation’s best up-and-coming choreographers and help choose the winner yourself.
