2021/22 School Shows

Each year more than 16,000 Pre-K through 12th grade students and teachers attend Ballet Austin’s School Shows. The mission of these student matinees is to provide a live ballet performance at a minimal cost for students. For the vast majority of students, this program serves as an introduction to live performing arts in Central Texas. To enhance the experience, Ballet Austin also provides educators with age-appropriate curricula to accompany most performances.
