The performing branch of Auburn Ballet School gives classical ballet students additional class and performance opportunities. ABS
students traditionally receive principal roles in the Nutcracker, which the East Alabama Community has come to anticipate as its kickoff of
the holiday season.
Most recently, Auburn Ballet presented Nadine Cole's Vienna Waltz at the 2008 Alabama Dance Festival Showcase Performance at the
Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center. Prior performances include Peter and the Wolf, accompanied by the Auburn Community Orchestra
under the leadership of Howard Goldstein, and Stephanie Sodeke's Ella Fitzgerald tribute Airmail Special. Auburn Ballet dancers have
also presented excerpts from Les Sylphides.
With the support and assistance of the Auburn Arts Association and the City of Auburn's Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, Auburn
Ballet presents two Young Choreographers' Concerts each year, as well as a Summer Intensive performance. All of these programs are
free to the public.
