Alabama Ballet


The Alabama Ballet began in 1981 as an outgrowth of the Birmingham Civic Ballet, the University of Alabama at Birmingham Ballet and Ballet Alabama.

Under the co-artistic direction of world-renowned dancers Dame Sonia Arova and Thor Sutowski, the company found status and recognition in the ranks of professional companies.

The company consists of 21 professional dancers and 24 apprentices from all areas of the United States and abroad.

The Alabama Ballet has featured principal dancers from China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, Canada and Russia.

Due to their extensive artistic training, each of the dancers continues to excel.

Dancers have come to join the Alabama Ballet from Bolshoi Ballet, Los Angeles Classical Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Miami City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet and the School of American Ballet.

In 2005, the Alabama Ballet established a professional affiliation with Samford University to further expand opportunities for students of dance and dance audiences in Alabama.
