Since taking the reins as Ballet Austin’s artistic director almost two decades ago, Stephen Mills has become known around the world for his “classically innovative” movement style. As a master of both classical and contemporary dance technique, Mills is an internationally acclaimed choreographer and master teacher who develops dancers and dance makers. He’s brought critical praise and recognition to Ballet Austin by using art to encourage community dialogue on important social issues, including those making news today.

As the headliner in next month’s MASTERS OF DANCE, Mills revisits a favorite work, KAI, set to the music of John Cage, that uses island rhythms and athletic choreography to help you see the music through the dance.
