featuring Lauren Anderson, Houston Ballet
Lauren Anderson - July 31 to August 4
Native Houstonian, Lauren Anderson danced with Houston Ballet from 1983 to 2006, performing lead roles in all the great classical ballet, appearing across the world to critical acclaim, and in the process, becoming one of Houston Ballet's most beloved stars. She trained exclusively at Houston Ballet's Ben Stevenson Academy from the age of seven. She joined Houston Ballet in 1983 as a Corps de Ballet, 1987 was promoted to Soloist and in 1990 became the first African American to be promoted to Principal Dancer at Houston Ballet. She is also one of the few African American ballerinas at the head of a major ballet company anywhere in the world. In January 2007, Ms. Anderson assumed her new role heading Houston Ballet's Education and Community Engagement program. Spring 2016, Ms. Anderson was included in a permanent exhibit in the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Summer Dance 2017 is Co-Produced by San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet and sponsored in part by a grant from the City of San Antonio Department for Arts and Culture.
