Houston Ballet's Ben Stevenson Academy Spring Showcase
"Don't let the student label fool you. Most of these 'pre-professionals' have been perfecting their art for more than a decade.” – Houston Chronicle
They've performed on stages in Australia, Guatemala, Hungary and Mexico, and have been honored at the Prix de Lausanne in Switzerland. In fact, these young dancers are so exceptionally skilled, it's hard to believe they're students. Yet they train at Houston Ballet's Ben Stevenson Academy. Whether they're performing scenes from well-known ballets or new works created especially for them, the young dancers represent the future of ballet, a future that looks to be very bright indeed. Can you spot the stars of tomorrow?
