Alabama Youth Ballet Theatre is the non-profit performing company of Alabama Youth Ballet. Under the artistic direction of Keren Gibb Hilliard & David Herriott, AYBT produces two major performances each year, including The Nutcracker (including much of the original choreography that has made this a Huntsville favorite) in December and their much loved Fairy Tale Ballet series in the spring, featuring timeless classics like Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. In addition to these productions, members use dance to bring smiles to many faces with visits to retirement homes & hospitals, elementary school performances & participation in community arts events such as the Panoply Arts Festival.
