Avant Chamber Ballet
Avant Chamber Ballet brings exceptional live dance and chamber music together for audiences in the DFW Metroplex. Funding will support the commissioning of a new ballet to mark the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The work will celebrate the determination, grit and strength of the suffragette movement. The music and choreography reflect on the current state of equity in our culture and the work left to do. The work strives to commemorate the importance of the 19th Amendment and also to open a dialogue about the broader need for equity in our society. They serve 4,500 adults and children across Dallas. They expect a total of 1,000 audience members to attend at least one performance of this work.
