American Ballet Theatre returns to Nebraska to launch the national tour of the company’s cross-country road trip, ABT Across America

ABT is one of the great dance companies in the world and is internationally celebrated as a cultural institution dedicated to preserving and extending the great legacy of classical dancing.

This summer, ABT will bring 20 acclaimed artists to Lincoln's Pioneers Park for a can’t-miss, captivating performance as part of the company’s cross-country road trip, ABT Across America, traveling to 8 U.S. cities this July. These unique outdoor presentations are among the first live performances for ABT in over a year. 

Designated by an act of Congress as America’s National Ballet Company®, ABT is recognized as a living national treasure. Since its founding in 1940, ABT annually tours the United States, performing for more than 300,000 people, and is the only major cultural institution to do so. For 81 years, the Company has appeared in 45 countries and has performed in all 50 states.
