An Important Message from American Ballet Theatre
American Ballet Theatre mourns together with and for the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and the countless others who have lost loved ones because of racism.
In the fight for justice and equality, we stand with these fellow Americans and the communities of black and brown people all over this country who endure. While we stand in solidarity, we will not just stand by in the face of hate and violence.
We must devote ourselves to doing better. Doing more.
We must pursue justice, with the determination that dancers embody and the empathy that is the hallmark of the ABT community.
Black lives do matter.
