Not only is the theatre a dog-friendly workplace, but they also allow performers to bring their dogs on the road on traveling shows. “It’s a great stress reliever, especially since the ballet can be such an exhausting work environment. Plus it really adds to the family-like atmosphere here,” says ABT rep Susie Taylor.
