Freedom. Is. Everything.

About American Liberty Ballet

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

Our Philosophy

American Liberty Ballet is committed to the development of original and creative ideas through movement. As a company we are interested in exploring the many ways in which the body may be handled as a means of expression. Our goal is to externally embody our inner-selves in a compassionate, fun, skilled, artistic manner, which connects with the audience’s own sincerity.
