Ballet Austin's new home, The Butler Dance Education Center, is very close to completion in downtown Austin. That's a new 18-story AMLI apartment building going up next door.
Forrest is on the board of Ballet Austin and he has been engineering a week-by-week blog of the construction since August of last year.
The move-in date is near. Now all the elements of Ballet Austin-- artistic, administration, and the academy-- will be under one roof. (Ballet Austin has the fourth largest academy in the country, by the way, with over 1000 students. With this magnificent new facility, they will be able to expand the program.)
