Guest Artist Julie Kent Makes Special Appearance in Jubilee of Dance on December 5 

On Friday, December 5, 2014, Houston Ballet presents its eleventh annual Jubilee of Dance, a special one-night-only performance showcasing the talent and artistry of the company dancers in a program of high-energy excerpts from signature works and beloved classics. Houston Press dance critic Mandy Oaklander praised the production, "I've learned that as a general rule with the Houston Ballet, 'one-night-only performance' means go, or you'll wish you would have" (December 2011).

A highlight of this year's Jubilee of Dance is the appearance of acclaimed ballerina Julie Kent, a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre (ABT). Ms. Kent will reprise the lead female role in Mr. Welch's Clear. Ms. Kent originated the role when Mr. Welch first created the work on American Ballet Theatre in 2001.
