Founded in 2004 by Artistic Directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and Executive Director Julie Whittaker, Los Angeles Ballet is now in its 9th Season.
Known for its superb stagings of the Balanchine repertory, stylistically meticulous classical ballets and its commitment to new works, LAB has become recognized as a world-class ballet company. At the end of Season 8 LAB presented 24 productions encompassing 50 works, including 15 commissioned world premieres. Los Angeles Ballet ‘tours’ throughout LA County, regularly appearing at seven venues.
Since its inception in 2006, LAB’s Power of Performance (POP!) program has provided thousands of free tickets to underserved or disadvantaged children, seniors, veterans, and their families. LAB's A Chance to Dance Community Days outreach program was launched in October 2012.
