Public Invited To Houston Ballet Center Grand Opening

(News from the Houston Ballet)

Houston Ballet’s sleek new Center for Dance will hold a grand opening ceremony on Saturday, April 9 at noon with a ribbon cutting ceremony presided over by Houston Mayor Annise Parker at 601 Preston Street in the heart of downtown Houston’s Theater District. 

The new, six-story, 115,000 square-foot facility, designed with sustainable features by globally-recognized architecture firm Gensler, will come in around $46.6 million (an estimated $6.4 million under its original projected budget of $53 million), opening ahead of schedule. 

The building will boast nine dance studios, a dance lab that seats 200 for presentations as well as rehearsals, and artistic, administrative and support facilities for Houston Ballet and its academy.

Houstonians are invited to the ribbon cutting ceremony, which is FREE and open to the public, to experience the Center for Dance and to enjoy free performances by Houston Ballet II.
