Geographic areas served: Greater Houston area, and the surrounding communities.

Houston Ballet Foundation was formed in 1955 and chartered for the purpose of conserving and advancing the art form of dance.  Houston Ballet Academy, a school for nurturing talented dance students toward professional dance careers, was established that same year.  Since 2003, the company has been led by Artistic Director Stanton Welch, a young Australian choreographer who has brought new energy and excitement to Houston Ballet.  Now in its 40th year, Houston Ballet, with 54 full-time professional dancers, prides itself as one of the top five ballet companies in the U.S.

Furthermore, Houston Ballet is committed to inspiring a lifelong love of the arts, educating youth about the art of dance, and reaching the diverse populations of our area.  The organization’s Education Outreach efforts include free student matinee performances for over 7,000 school children annually, Studio Series Lecture/Demonstration program, Chance to Dance, and HBII – which takes performances directly to schools and community centers throughout the region. 

Houston Ballet’s mission is to inspire a lasting love and appreciation for dance through artistic excellence, exhilarating performances, innovative choreography and superb educational programs. 

In furtherance of our mission, we are committed to maintaining and enhancing our status as:

• A classically trained company with a diverse repertory whose range includes the classics as well as contemporary works.

• A company that attracts the world’s best dancers and choreographers and provides them with an environment where they can thrive and further develop the art form.

• An international company that is accessible to broad and growing local, national, and international audiences.

• A company with a world-class Academy that provides first rate instruction for professional dancers and meaningful programs for non-professional dancers.

• A company with state of the art facilities for performances, rehearsals, and ongoing operations.
