The athleticism and artistry of the dancers will make this upcoming season one of the most dynamic that Orlando audiences have ever seen. My goal is to enrich all of our lives through ballet. We work hard to bring you a blend of cutting-edge and classical choreography from our homegrown talents as well as invited choreographers and artists. Join us and experience classic lines, modern perspective.
