Ballet Concerto was incorporated in 1969 for the specific purpose of presenting the art of bal-let and other forms of dance to audiences of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds. Ballet Concerto is dedicated to continuing this tradition with a focus on providing lec-ture/demonstrations and in-school instruction to school-aged children. In an attempt to ex-tend even further its outreach and to reach families who might not otherwise experience the beauty and excitement of a live performance, Ballet Concerto has presented annually since 1983 the SUMMER DANCE CONCERT, a professional outdoor dance concert presented in Fort Worth's cultural district. Ballet Concerto also provides an outlet for talented young danc-ers and offers employment to professional dancers. Choreographers of national and interna-tional renown as well as emerging choreographers are invited to choreograph.
