Readers' Choice: HOUSTON BALLET

Innovative and daring, the Dominic Walsh Dance Theater rests on the broad shoulders of its founder and namesake, Dominic Walsh. Formerly a principal dancer with the Houston Ballet, Walsh struck out on his own, founding his own company and becoming a highly respected choreographer of contemporary ballets by expanding not only the repertoire but also the vocabulary of his classically trained dancers. Over the last season, DWDT presented the world premiere of Titus Andronicus (a retelling of Shakespeare's tale of bloody revenge and politics), the Houston premiere of The Trilogy: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (a collaboration with the Sarasota Ballet of Florida) and Sleeping Beauty (in a 21st-century setting peopled with club kids and office workers). Each brought something fresh and new to the stage, adding depth and substance to Houston's ever-growing pool of talented dance companies.

My Voice Nation Help

Dominic is the most talented choreographer of our time. His works of art are inspiring and dramatic, yet relevant to our time and reflective. Just as you begin to grow a bit contented , he throws you a curve ball. I love his work so much that my Husband and I flew to Houston in May to see the Trilogy on Mozart. It was a wonderful trip and we loved the work so much we are planning another trip to Houston to see the rep in May.
