Houston Repertoire Ballet (HRB), Houston’s premier pre-professional ballet company, celebrates its 23rd season, beginning with its 20th annual performance series of The Nutcracker, featuring professional guest artists Elizabeth Keller as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Andrew Taft as the Cavalier, and Joe Modlin as Herr Drosselmeyer, with the Cypress Philharmonic directed by Glynnes Lanthier.
HRB has received a generous grant from Texas Commission on the Arts, enabling HRB to expand its outreach mission to children currently attending three Title-1 schools. Up to 24 students from each campus will participate, free of charge (including class attire, costumes, and other supplies), in one-hour weekly ballet classes at their respective campuses, and will receive dance instruction in the “Nutcracker Experience.”
HRB dancers are committed to sharing the arts with the community. Community engagement events include costumed appearances at various nursing homes, group events, and at Arts & Education performances.
Major funding provided by the City of Tomball and Texas Commission on the Arts.
