Freedom. Is. Everything.
About American Liberty Ballet
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.
