What People Say
  • I attended Friendswood Contemporary Ballet’s performances at our Friendswood Culture and Cuisine event and was completely blown away by the talent and professionalism of the performers. I’m thankful that we live in a city where we can attend such amazing performances as the one put on by Friendswood Contemporary Ballet. I’m looking forward to their next show!

    ~ Mike Foreman, Mayor of Friendswood

  • I was a Principal Dancer with Friendswood Contemporary Ballet for three years and recently had the privilege of collaborating with the director to develop choreography for “In the Journey.” My time as a company member of FCB was one of growth and intentionality and I am so thankful for this experience that challenged and cultivated me into the dancer and person I am today.

    ~ Grace Rebresh

  • I love that Friendswood Contemporary Ballet offers a pre-professional company for girls who would like to be serious in their ballet training. I have attended a few of FCB’s performances and I love that I get to watch a professional performance in my hometown. This company is unique to our town and what has to offer young baller dancers.
