Vitacca Ballet (Vitacca) founded in 2020 by Kelly Ann Vitacca is a creation-based repertoire company in the Houston area. As the pandemic brought artists home to Houston, Vitacca strived to keep artists employed, and the Houston arts scene alive with project-based work. This experience laid the framework for the launch of Vitacca Ballet in 2021, which now works diligently to operate a 31-week season and employ local, national, and international artists. Vitacca has had the honor to work with regional and international choreographers including Tina Kay Bohnstedt, Sean Aaron Carmon, Andrea Dawn Shelley, Garrett Smith, Autumn Eckman and Madison Hicks. Vitacca Ballet has been seen on stage within performance and outreach community events such as The Nutcracker, Night at the Ballet, Vitacca Ballet World Premiere, Contemporary Dance Choreography Festival, Florida and Versatility Dance Festival, Utah. This season you can see Vitacca Ballet at the Bailindo Dance Festival, ANDIOMO Presented by Charles Bender Performing Arts Center, Trees of Hope Gala as 2022 Entertainment Sponsor, LAUNCH at Match Houston, Ventana/Vitacca Ballet Austin Collaboration and the Red Rock Dance Festival, Utah. Vitacca is a proud recipient of the Dance Source Houston Groundwork Grant and thrilled to share its artistic energy with our 2022-2023 patrons and supporters.
