TEXAS METROPOLITAN BALLET

Nutcracker & Company Auditions

​Texas Metropolitan Ballet academy provides performing opportunities with the goal to promote the dancer's professional training through class and performance.  It is TMB's belief that regular performances are integral to the training process and can push a dancer towards their goal of professionalism as no amount of classroom training can. TMB offers opportunities for its dancers and the community to involve themselves in the arts through the rehearsal process, the backstage experience and onto the stage.

From their own experience, Mr. & Mrs. Marks know that learning the art of giving to the audience is a very essential and invaluable part of training.  The joy and passion for performing was passed on to them by master teachers and critical audiences and they are driven to share this treasure with students who truly possess the passion to learn and challenge themselves in the demanding art of classical ballet.  Proven to show a distinctive quality throughout vastly different styles, the Marks work one on one with each individual dancer in the production crafting a uniform look over different styled dancers desiring to work with the dancer in mind rather than the dance alone.

With choreography ranging from classical to contemporary and even jazz. Mr. Marks brings to the stage naturally passionate and original compositions, which have been staged throughout the US including theaters in Texas, for Richmond Ballet dancers and even brought an invitation to assist Sigourney Weaver and Toby Jones with choreography for the film “Infamous”.
