Ballet and Beyond
October 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Dance Alive National Ballet presents BALLET & BEYOND
Dazzling classical ballet bumps up against a contemporary social issue in this first program of the season. Bridging the past and the present, DANB opens with the bravura classic Don Quixote Suite, continues with dramatic contemporary works and closes with Judy Skinner’s mesmerizing Oceana, a creation illuminating the crisis of ocean pollution. With film created by Lisa Crawley and music by Resident Composer Stella Sung, the ballet also has a phone app so that audience members can access AND play sounds of sea animals during the ballet. Educational as well as entertaining.
Guest Artist ballerina/choreographer Oksana Maslova premiers a work created for DANB and then performs two works with Stirling Baca, principal dancer with Pennsylvania Ballet. Choreographers and dancers work their magic and create an evening never to be forgotten. Family friendly.
Tickets are available at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. $25-$45
