Charlottesville Ballet Presents: A Decade of Dance
Live Events | 05/5/2018 | 7:00PM
Join Charlottesville Ballet for a special 10th Anniversary Production: A Decade of Dance. Charlottesville Ballet presents its most treasured works from the repertory alongside newly commissioned pieces that showcase the Ballet’s vision for the future of dance.
The program will include highlights from the Ballet Le Corsaire including the Grand Pas de Deux and the Odalisques Pas de Trois. Contemporary choreographers include Jason Ambrose, Rainey Jarrell, Steven Melendez, and Peter LeBreton Merz. The performance will culminate in a grand finale by Keith Lee (former soloist with the American Ballet Theatre) featuring students from the Ballet’s outreach program Chance To Dance and members of the larger Charlottesville dance community.
And don’t miss the special Encore After-Party in the Founders Lounge after the performance to celebrate the Ballet’s ten years in Charlottesville! Enjoy food, wine, and beer sponsored by The Shebeen Pub and Braai, Michael Shaps Wineworks, and Champion Brewing Company while you mingle with the professional artists of the Charlottesville Ballet. A limited number of tickets to the Encore After-Party are available as a $50.00 add-on to your ticket.
