Wabi Sabi

Taking Dance Off the Stage & Into the Community

Created by Atlanta Ballet Company dancer John Welker in 2011, Wabi Sabi was a dance initiative that challenged new audiences, fostered the next generation of choreographic talent, and pushed the boundaries of ballet through the creation of new works. By seeking a collaboration of art forms, Atlanta Ballet furthered its commitment to educating audiences and inspiring the community.

Wabi Sabi took its name from a Japanese worldview that finds beauty in the sincerity, simplicity, and integrity of the natural world. As one of the most exciting dance initiatives in Atlanta, Wabi Sabi combined our city's own emerging choreographers with beautiful and engaging venues for amazing outdoor performances that brought art to the people.
