As distinctive and dynamic as the city it calls home, Ballet Austin welcomes audiences near and far to participate in its “classically innovative” vision for the democratization of dance. With a rich history spanning five decades, acclaimed productions, a commitment to creating access to programs and one of the nation’s largest classical ballet academies, the organization is poised for an even greater future. From their home at the Butler Dance Education Center in downtown Austin, Ballet Austin and Artistic Director Stephen Mills actively engage the community, dancers, and audiences alike. The New York Times proclaims Ballet Austin “a company with big ambitions” originating work that is “absorbing.”

Grisha is unbelievable.

Here he is playing for what looks like 1,000 people when he was too small for his feet to even touch the ground!  Watch to about the one-minute mark and you’ll get a glimpse of his monumental talent.

I am simply thrilled to be collaborating again with the Long Center to produce FlamencoAustin – opening night is Thursday, September 13th.  It’s perfect that Grisha is our debut artist for the series, because it was his Dell Hall performance in June 2010, that inspired us to move forward with the whole idea!

Grisha will perform in Dell Hall at 8.  But the party starts at 6:30!

Everyone with the ticket to the show is invited to arrive on the terrace at 6:30 to hear and see Pilar Andújar and her troupe perform live flamenco music and dance.  Chef Alejandro Duran of Málaga Tapas and Bar is making free Spanish tapas (so get there early!) and Twin Liquors is selecting Spanish wines that will be for sale.

If you want a full dinner, and air-conditioning, and a taste of authentic Spain, we are also offering a phenomenal Spanish dinner in the Kodosky Lounge prepared by chef Maria Fernanda CandilCheck out the menu here!

I love our collaborations with the Long Center.  Great things always seem to happen!  Whether it is Pepe Romero with the Austin Symphony, the Alamo Drafthouse’s Master Pancake heckling Ralph Macchio’s Crossroads, or the Miró Quartet with Jorge Caballero, the nights are always unforgettable.

I can’t wait to see you for FlamencoAustin on September 13th!
