To be honest, I expected more. The dancers are sub-par. It looks as though they have INTERNS, ie: unpaid dancers. Any professional dancer, who does this for a living and expects to get paid for it, would perform better.

That being said, I appreciate what they are trying to do in the community, and I think it is probably fun for the young kids who come see the performances, but as a long-time lover of ballet and someone who has seen over 200 ballets in various parts of the world, this is one of the worst.

hire better dancers. Some of them don't even have the right body type. Too tall/big.

Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre is an organization reaching out for the appreciation of dance throughout the area. A lot of the general population is tired of the typical performance, and is looking for something new. Something they can related to. That is what this company is doing. It is a pleasure every performance.

I am an Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre board member, and company dancer. My experiences with the company will always be a part of my life. We aim to embrace the San Antonio community with as many opportunities to view ballet as not your average art form. We perform for free to the local students in the San Antonio area biannually, as well as have free lecture demonstrations that we travel to their school. We are a highly motivated company who strives to continue to grow in the San Antonio community.

My daughter has taken ballet for over 10 years and decided to join the Alamo Arts Theater this past year. Not only has she become a more dedicated and skillful ballerina, she has seen its importance in our community. She has participated on various lecture demos at inner city schools and has been able to share her passion and commitment to ballet. The theater's goal seems not only to give the members a chance to perform but to involve the community and together appreciate the importance of the performing arts.

Prior to my personal involvement with Alamo Arts Ballet Theatre, I had the privilege to know the Director, Choreographer, and several of the dancers. Their passion for ballet, unique choreography, and the community is what drew me to them. Their passion is contagious and my children now all want to be dancers when they grow up. We all have a very deep desire to bring San Antonio new and innovated choreography, and to bring it to everyone in the community. From going into schools to give lecture demoes, giving free performances of our Spring and FAll programs to area schools and homeschools, to their unique performances that push the boundaries and stretch what we think of when we think of ballet. I consider it an honor to be involved with such an awesome and passionate group of people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My 12 year old son wants to become a professional dancer, due to the men he has seen dance with the company. My daughter wants to be one of the dancers. It isn't just the amazing dancing they want to immolate but the character they see in the dancers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The humility and passion that everyone has. Their desire is simply to dance and bring everyone unique choreography. They want everyone to know what an amazing art form ballet and all dance is, and how much art enriches the lives of all it touches.
