The Houston Repertoire Ballet (HRB) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) dance organization. The youth ballet was conceptualized in 1994 and received non-profit status in 1995. It arose from the need and desire to provide North Harris County communities with the highest quality of dance education and performance. HRB has grown to become the premier pre-professional company in the area requiring discipline and commitment from the dancers and providing two major productions for the community each season.
The Houston Repertoire Ballet Company is a collaborative effort of its artistic directors, Gilbert Rome and Victoria Vittum. Both are nationally recognized teachers and choreographers. Since its inception, HRB students have been accepted to an impressive list of nationally recognized ballet programs throughout the country. In addition, HRB dancers have gone on to dance professionally with numerous professional ballet companies.
Mission of HRB...
Houston Repertoire Ballet (HRB) is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the art of classical ballet, providing a program of the highest quality to local dancers through professional instruction, education and performance experiences. To ensure quality, acceptance into the company is limited and by invitation only.
The company gives young, talented, dedicated dancers the serious training needed for them to enter the professional world of dance, while providing cultural education and community service to surrounding cities. Dancer development is also encouraged through competition for HRB’s Daisy Rome dance scholarship sponsored annually to promote artistic growth.
