Scroll down to see Houston Ballet’s upcoming performances, shows, and events.

Founded in 1955, the city’s largest dance organization is also one of the country’s most renowned.

Houston Ballet presents six full-length ballets each year, in addition to recital programs from its professional training arm, Houston Ballet II.

The company is known for its visually and technically stunning productions of classics such as Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet, as well as contemporary and little-performed ballets.
