AMERICAN FESTIVAL FOR THE ARTS CHOREOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE
Since 1997, the American Festival for the Arts and Houston Ballet have provided a unique collaborative opportunity for the Summer Intensive Program students in Level 8. Interested students work hand-in-hand with young aspiring composers to produce original works of both dance and music. This “world-premiere” is unique to Houston Ballet and offers students the exciting chance to explore the techniques and process of creating, rehearsing, and performing short pieces of original choreography. Since its inception, students have created over 125 new creations.
