Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre Presents Ailey II
Alvin Ailey once said, "Dance is for everybody. I believe that dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people." In the spirit of the late master's populist philosophy, the troupe that bears his name doesn't just produce shows—they also provide dance training and community programs for aspiring performers and ambitious pointe shoes. And when the critically-acclaimed company does take the stage, every soaring leap and intricate step powerfully communicates a unique perspective on American culture and history.
Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre
For more than fifty years, the acclaimed Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre has brought classical and contemporary dance to the delta. Each season includes productions from their local company and traveling troupes, ensuring an artistically eclectic mix of shows that might see Cinderella hosted alongside a modern premiere. An annual staging of The Nutcracker – A Tale from the Bayou puts a local spin on a holiday favorite by transporting the timeless fairy tale to 19th century Louisiana, an era when the state was known for its large population of wooden soldiers.
