  • I took my 10 year old daughter and mother to see ACBT's Carmen at Caesar's this past weekend and it was amazing! The choreography, dancing, and acting was beautifully performed. All three generations equally enjoyed the show. Wonderful job ACBT! We can't wait to see Swan Lake in May!!!

  • I saw Romeo and Juliet today with my husband. Rarely do we see a performance where the performers are able to convey their feelings so deeply that you experience their love, frustration, pain, and desperation as though you were experiencing the situation yourself.
    I have seen theater and ballet all over the world, and I cannot remember any performance evoking this much feeling. If you are considering taking in one or all of their performances, I urge you to do so. You will not be disappointed. Congratulations to all the dancers and particularly Romeo and Juliet for your outstanding performance! BRAVO!! "Marie Loehwing Land"

  • My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful performance by the Atlantic City Ballet last night at the Strand Theater in Lakewood. It is so wonderful to find a world-class ballet so close to home! As a ballet student myself, I was inspired and look forward to seeing many more performances by this company!
