The Houston Ballet
There are many exciting activities at your fingertips at Alexan Enclave Apartments in Houston. In a state associated with iconic cowboys and a city most associated, perhaps, with the oil industry, it is remarkable how many vibrant cultural offerings Houston has. Of these, one of the most exciting is the Houston Ballet, an internally acclaimed company that is considered one of the top five ballet companies in the world. Its dancers have won prizes and medals from major international ballet competitions. It is located in a beautiful new building, on the banks of Buffalo Bayou and connected to Wortham Center by an overhead walkway at Smith at Preston streets in the city's historic area and Theater District.
Whether you love ballet, practiced when you were younger, or have never been to a ballet, the Houston Ballet Foundation has offerings that will make you a participant in the Houston community. The Ballet prides itself on being both wide-ranging and accessible to contemporary audiences. Its dances range from contemporary to classical: in the 2015-2016 season, for example, The Nutcracker and the classic Sleeping Beauty will be presented, along with more contemporary works.
The Houston Ballet also participates in community activities throughout the Houston area. One of its events is a holiday shopping extravaganza, the 35th annual Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market, held in mid-November at the NRG Center. Shoppers can find merchandise for holiday giving from 300 merchants, including home décor, food, clothing, toys, ornaments, pottery, and home and personal accessories. The proceeds go towards scholarship and training programs for the Ballet.
And remember, the good life awaits you at Alexan Enclave.
