The International Council of American Ballet Theatre
Celebrating its role as a cultural ambassador, American Ballet Theatre launched the International Council in the Spring of 2010 with a mission to raise the profile of classical dance and support dance’s unique ability to promote dialogue and cultural exchange. The Council seeks to leverage the power of dance to underscore our common humanity and inspire future generations.
Beginning in the United Kingdom, the Council’s inaugural activities are centered around American Ballet Theatre’s tour to London in early 2011 and an exchange between the Royal Ballet School and the ABT Studio Company. This model underscores the Company’s commitment to bringing important works, and an international roster of extraordinary dancers, to audiences around the globe.
ABT International Exchange Ltd.
ABT International Exchange Ltd. is a newly formed charitable organization (registration number 1142387 with the UK Charities Commission) whose purpose is to advance and promote the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of ballet and the universal language of dance through the exchange of talent and ideas among the world’s leading dance companies and their schools, as well as other cultural and educational entities.
Donations can be made directly to ABT International Exchange Ltd., and donations from UK taxpayers will be eligible for Gift Aid.
