American Contemporary Ballet’s mission is to produce and present choreographic works of the highest quality which exemplify dance as a musical art form.
American Contemporary Ballet was founded to produce original contemporary classical ballets, and to present twentieth-century masterworks that exemplify dance as a musical art form. The company's repertory includes works by George Balanchine, Fred Astaire, as well as original works and reconstructions of the seminal works of ballet's history.
ACB's performances are always danced to live music, which is played by some of LA's finest classical musicians. Our venues seat the audience at stage level, and each program is followed by a reception with the artists and live music. We also provide audiences with an opportunity to connect with ballet intellectually and critically through our Conversations and Dancing School programs.
