Avant Chamber Ballet Announces the 2024-25 Season

Avant Chamber Ballet Artistic Director Katie Puder announces the company’s 12th season with its largest season yet. For the subscription series ACB will present four unique productions in Dallas all at Moody Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District.

“I am thrilled to announce this season with many projects that are years in the making,” said Artistic Director Katie Puder. “It’s also special to move our whole season back to Moody Performance Hall for first time since the pandemic.”

The season starts with the world premiere of Katie Puder’s The Princess and the Pauper with live music by Cezanne Quartet September 21-22 at Moody Performance Hall. The production will be a first for ACB with the story-telling driven by not only innovative choreography but also projection mapping to make the performance an immersive experience.

Next is Paul Mejia’s The Nutcracker with Live Orchestra at Moody Performance Hall December 6-8. This lush, professional production conducted by Brad Cawyer, the professional dancers of ACB, and a large children’s cast representing all of DFW from local auditions. This is an annual sell-out tradition.

2025 starts with Love Stories February 14-15 at Moody Performance Hall. The program is a triple bill of new works commissioned through the Women’s Choreography Project. This year’s choreographers are Fernanda Oliveira from Pennsylvania Ballet, Christina Ghiardi from Nevada Ballet Theater, and ACB director Katie Puder all with live music.

To finish the season ACB presents Masterworks with four ballets from masters of the craft both historical and alive today. The program features Marius Petipa’s Sleeping Beauty Act 3, August Bournenville’s Napoli, Paul Mejia’s Serenade in A, and Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain.

Subscriptions are on sale now at www.AvantChamberBallet.org. Subscribers will receive a 20% discount on all tickets with a choice of subscribing to three or four shows.
