Fantastic job on Food for Thought! Everything was so well done, from the choreography to the dancing to the music. We thoroughly enjoyed the show.
I was a student for many years way back at the beginning, when BRT was the Ballet Theatre and we first moved to the KiMo. Just wanted to let you know the lessons I learned stay with me to this day. I'm still dancing for fun and passing the love on to my daughter ❤
What a beautiful Nutcracker last night! I was so glad to see Annie Cormier back with the company! I THOUGHT that was her on stage! And also to see my former student, Cameron Cormier. (I was his preschool teacher!)

BRT was founded in 1989 and has achieved recognition as one of the leading dance institutions in the state. Great responsibilities accompany this prominence: to train fine young pre-professional dancers and to bring the vital art of dance to the community

Spanish Zoom

Proud of our company dancer, Vivien Jones, who took the initiative to suggest outreach to her youngest sibling's school after BRT’s director, Katherine Giese, had been working on special Nutcracker variations for a project that due to COVID-19 restrictions did not happen. All last week, twice a day, Ms. Vivien has been performing via Zoom for different grade levels of Georgia O’Keefe Elementary School, starting with her telling them the story of “The Nutcracker”, dancing Ms. Katherine’s Spanish variation for them, and following up with a Q and A. Way to go Vivien!

Congratulations Katherine Liljestrand!

The Tallahassee Ballet is excited to welcome our newest company member: Katherine Liljestrand! @kat.liljestrand Katherine is originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. She trained with Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico, where she later danced with the company for many seasons until moving to DC to attend law school at Georgetown University. Katherine danced with various small groups in the DC metro area for the past four years, most recently returning to Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico to guest as Titania in Celia Dale’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Katherine is a huge bookworm with a special affinity for fantasy, classics, and fairytales. Katherine’s favorite species is the giant squid.
Welcome, Katherine! We are so happy to have you in our ballet family!

General information

Known as the “ballet company at the KiMo”, we at BRT have worked hard to become the premiere ballet company for Albuquerque and for you, integrating ourselves into the community and — just like Albuquerque — truly being unique. Every year, the company expands its repertoire and reaches new audiences, joyously demonstrating its mastery of both classics and innovative works. BRT’s Academy has provided the finest professional ballet instruction in the Albuquerque area for over 30 years. Our goal is always to create an environment that is challenging, disciplined, and rigorous while, at the same time, safe, healthy, and nurturing. The development of discipline, strength and stamina and the achievement of grace in movement are the results of years of intense study. Though few dancers will follow the road to a professional career in dance, the discipline and concentration children learn in dance classes will serve them the rest of their lives, whatever their future. To accomplish these goals, Ballet Repertory Theatre offers each student the care, and attention they deserve. In return, Ballet Repertory Theatre demands the very best effort capable of each student. A dancer's training of both mind and body must start early. BRT’s Academy is a training school for classical ballet students, offering a complete curriculum of ballet technique and broadened by classes in related fields. The ballet syllabus is based on classical Vaganova technique and is enhanced by 20th century dance forms and ideas. It is impossible without a great school for Ballet Repertory Theatre to achieve and maintain a great dance company. BRT offers young dancers the unique opportunity to observe its Senior Company in its daily classes and rehearsal, giving them the inspiration needed to sustain the years of arduous training ahead. Today's students are the future of the company -- many as discriminating, enthusiastic members of the ballet audience and for others as members of the company.
