We’re almost done with the first month of 2017 and Charlottesville Ballet is hard at work prepping for the busy balletic month of February! Here’s a quick Company Update of some of the things the CB Artists have been working on since their return from their post-Nutcracker break:
Dancers are prepping for the Studio Theatre performance that’s included in the Father/Daughter Valentine Dance, which is always a special treat for young attendees as they get to boogie with the professional dancers before and after the performance. This year’s performance includes the sprightly “Cupid Variation” from the classical ballet Don Quixote, and former CB Artist Mary Hein’s Danse de Quatre. Tickets for the event are still available at CharlottesvilleBallet.org/FDVD2017.
(Check out a clip of CB Artist Regina DuPont performing “Cupid” at the 2016 event:
Charlottesville Ballet’s beloved in-house preview series: “UpFront” returns this season with Evening of Romance, an evening of wine, hors d’oeuvres from The Shebeen Pub & Braai, and dancing. The UpFront series provide an intimate sneak peek of the works presented in CB’s Season 9 mainstage productions (specifically Chopiniana + New Works). This February’s will include scenes from the romantic reverie: Chopiniana, as well as a Charlottesville premiere by Richmond Ballet’s “homegrown ballerina” Maggie Small. Check out her Choreographer Interview below, and then make sure to join us in person by visiting CharlottesvilleBallet.org/Upfront.
And looking ahead to March…
Charlottesville Ballet presents the romantic ballet Chopiniana and new contemporary works on March 18 at PVCC. Charlottesville’s CBS19 proudly presents this season’s annual mixed repertory production, and we hope you can join for the groundbreaking artistic event of the season! Tickets and more information available at CharlottesvilleBallet.org/Chopiniana.
