Evening of the Arts


Friendswood Contemporary Ballet has postponed our Spring event, Evening of the Arts, originally scheduled for April 25th, 2020. This decision deeply saddens us; although we know that it is necessary due to recent public events. At this time, we do not have a date set; however we will be making decisions as new information arises guiding us on how to best manage a public event of this caliber.  Be on the lookout for more updates and information in the coming weeks!
