About ABT Across America

ABT Across America builds on ABT’s history of cross-country tours in the 1940s and 1950s. 20 ABT dancers and 28 support crew will travel across 14 states, for a total of 3,100 miles, performing outdoors. These unique performances will take place on a custom-built 40’ x 76’ stage that folds out of an 18-wheeler truck.

Each 50-minute show will be performed without an intermission. Repertory for ABT Across America will feature Lauren Lovette’s La Follia Variations, a work for eight dancers set to music by Francesco Geminiani, Jessica Lang’s Let Me Sing Forevermore, a pas de deux blending ballet and jazz vocabulary set to songs sung by Tony Bennett, Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Indestructible Light, a celebration of American jazz music, and the high-spirited, energetic pas de deux from the full-length ballet Don Quixote alternating with the White Swan pas de deux from Kevin McKenzie’s classic Swan Lake.
