More than a half-century old, one of the country's top ballet companies dances a full schedule of original and adapted works with innovative choreography and spectacular costumes and sets. …A place where thousands of people who rarely experience the arts in Austin come as our guests to enjoy the movement, the music, and the magic we call dance. This unique place is Ballet Austin’s Butler Dance Education Center. The Center democratized dance by making it physically and financially accessible to all of Austin up to six days every week, instead of only five weekends a year. The Butler Dance Education Center features seven rehearsal studios, in-house performance space with capacity to seat 287 people, the Austin Ventures Studio Theater, more parking, 15 restrooms plus locker rooms with showers, and a Community School with added classrooms and classes, more room for more students and expanded curriculum. Under the leadership of artistic director Stephen Mills, whose experience includes choreography and directing both classical and contemporary ballets, Ballet Austin has adopted a unique blend of classical dance with innovative style and movement.
