Enjoy the inspiring performance of vibrant young dancers when the ABT Studio Company brings artistry, professionalism, and innovation of the American Ballet Theatre to San Juan College.

Ballet Dancers on stage

On Thursday, March 16, at 8 p.m. in the Henderson Fine Arts Performance Hall.

ABT Studio Company, the junior company of American Ballet Theatre, is made up of 12 to 18 rising stars of the ballet world between the ages of 16 and 20. ABT Studio Company prepares these outstanding young dancers, who hail from all over the globe, to enter American Ballet Theatre or other leading ballet companies worldwide. Nearly 80 percent of current dancers in American Ballet Theatre are alumni of ABT Studio Company, including 13 Soloists and 9 Principal Dancers-among them Misty Copeland, David Hallberg, and Isabella Boylston.

ABT Studio Company dancers perform masterworks of the classical and neoclassical canons, alongside contemporary and newly created works. The group commissions a wide variety of choreographers to create new, custom pieces on the dancers each season. As part of the ABT Women’s Movement, the Studio Company commissions at least one World-class dance company coming to Henderson Performance Hall work by an emerging female choreographer each year. The highly mobile ABT Studio Company serves as an ambassador for American Ballet Theatre by touring to venues large and small. In recent years, the Studio Company has performed in such international cities as London, Athens, Manila, and St. Petersburg, and to a wide variety of US performing arts centers, outdoor festivals, museums, and college campuses.
