The Company’s Performance Venues
In its first years, from 1961 to 1968, Fort Worth Ballet performed at the Majestic Theater in Fort Worth, which has since been torn down, and what is now the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, formerly the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum.
1968 marked a milestone for the entire performing arts community in Fort Worth with the opening of the John F Kennedy Theatre at the Fort Worth Convention Center. This theatre became Fort Worth Ballet's premiere performance venue for three decades.
In 1988, Fort Worth Ballet performed its first performances of The Nutcracker at Dallas’s Music Hall at Fair Park. A few years later in 1994, Fort Worth Ballet officially became Fort Worth Dallas Ballet, and the entire 1994-1995 season was performed at the Music Hall.
Ten years later, in May of 1998, Fort Worth Dallas Ballet performed Balanchine's Jewels in the opening festivities at the recently completed Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth. Bass Hall became the Company's Fort Worth home beginning in the fall of 1998, remains the Hall's resident ballet company.
Texas Ballet Theater is also the resident ballet company of the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, which opens in October 2009.
