Ballet Abilene

Each year Abilene Ballet Theatre performs a condensed (approximately 45 minutes) version of “The Nutcracker” for all AISD and area 4th graders free of charge as our gift to the community. For many of these children, it is their first time to go to the majestic Paramount Theatre and as you can imagine for many, their very first time to see a live ballet performance. We get wonderful feedback from the schools. The teachers collect the most darling hand written thank you notes and detailed illustrations of what the children saw. It is quite touching year after year. We began this program about 5 years after our very first Nutcracker and we estimate that over these years, we’ve brought the magic of the ballet to over 60,000 school children in our community and beyond. It warms our heart to know that these children might develop a love for this fine art and we hope we’ve made their holiday season a little brighter in the process.

A big shout out to our ABT donors for helping us raise our first $1,000 during Abilene Gives! Keep it up!

Your gift to ABT during Abilene Gives supports our annual production of The Nutcracker which brings together over 125 young dancers to tell the story of Clara and her Prince and transporting audiences into the magical Land of the Sweets. Make your donation to ABT at
