Festival Ballet is the performing semi-professional ballet company in residence at the Academy of Ballet & Dance Arts and the Woodlands Dance Academy.
As an independent 501 c-3 arts organization, founded by Artistic Director Deborah Rayburn in July 1996, our mission is to enlighten and entertain audiences with classical and contemporary presentations, provide performance experience for advanced level ballet students, and encourage and promote the art of dance in our community.
Festival Ballet provides quality performances to audiences and acts as a haven to talented young local dancers and as a magnet to national and international talents. Festival Ballet is committed to artistic excellence in its performances and to the highest quality training in its instruction.
Celebrating our 20th year as a performing organization, Festival Ballet continues to delight audiences with consummate performances. From excellence on stage to outreach in local schools and the community, Festival Ballet is honored to be a part of the culture of our community.
