American Ballet Theatre
American Ballet Theatre is recognized as one of the great dance companies in the world. Few ballet companies equal ABT for its combination of size, scope, and outreach. Recognized as a living national treasure since its founding in 1940, ABT performs for more than 450,000 people annually. The Company has also made more than 30 international tours to 50 countries as perhaps the most representative American ballet company and has been sponsored by the State Department of the United States on many of these engagements.
Looking to get more involved? American Ballet Theatre's Junior Council is a group of young professionals, between the ages of 21-40, dedicated to the celebration and support of ABT's world-class artistry. Membership in the Junior Council helps ABT continue to present the highest caliber of dance and to expand ABT's audience to younger generations – ensuring the future of classical ballet!
