Ballet Ariel’s season opener Peter and the Wolf is perfect for a family afternoon outing. Peter and the Wolf, Prokofiev’s timeless symphonic tale becomes a charming ballet in the hands of Ilena Norton, Ballet Ariel’s Artistic Director. Prokofiev’s clever use of instrumentation and Norton’s delightful choreography create a captivating classical ballet of the story of a young boy, Peter, and his animal friends Cat, Bird and Duck, as they bravely venture into the Russian forest to hunt for the Wolf. Included in the production are select dances from Act Three of Swan Lake, based on Petipa’s 1895 revival, and staged by Oleg Dedogryuk, Rehearsal Director for Ballet Ariel and a former dancer with the Eifman Ballet and Colorado Ballet. Derived from an old German fairy tale, Act Three of Swan Lake is a cornucopia of dancers from foreign lands performing for the Prince. The Spanish, Hungarian and Neapolitan dances that so thoroughly entertain the Royal court will be equally entertaining for audiences of all ages. A trio of matinee performances, all curtains rise at 3:00 p.m., the perfect time for young audience members. Performances will be on Saturday, October 19th at D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center, 11801 Community Center Drive, Northglenn; Sunday, October 20th at Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Theatre, 119 Park Avenue West, Denver; and Sunday, October 27th at The Schoolhouse Theatre, 19650 E.

The Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University will open the 2019-20 season with Avanti, a presentation of new and revisited works opening November 1st. Performance dates and times are November 1, 2, and 7 - 9 at 8:00 p.m., and November 3 at 2:30 p.m. All performances are at Mather Dance Center, 11201 Bellflower Road, on the Case Western Reserve campus in University Circle. Headlining the program will be Like Fragments from an Old Song, created for the graduate dancers by internationally acclaimed guest choreographer Pam Tanowitz. Alongside this work is the return of the historic and lyrical Air for the G String by modern dance pioneer Doris Humphrey, and the fast-paced Caffeinated by guest choreographer Larry Keigwin. Rounding out the program is a second restaging of Gary Galbraith’s Islands of Desire, which premiered in 2014, and his new work Brothers, featuring the department’s male dancers. Like Fragments from an Old Song is set to and inspired by Broad and Free, a composition for violin and piano by contemporary composer Caroline Shaw. The work was created during Tanowitz’s eight day CWRU residency in September and explores fragmented movements woven together by the dancers’ connectivity and intuition, with an homage to the history of Mather Dance Center. Returning to the Mather stage is Caffeinated, an energetic and charming dance set to Philip Glass’s Glasspiece #3. The work was commissioned by New York University’s dance department and was expanded in 2018 by Jaclyn Walsh, Keigwin’s regisseur, for a cast of 12 CWRU dancers that includes graduate students and undergraduate dance majors. The department will again present Doris Humphrey's graceful, sculptural, and processional quintet Air for the G String set to Johann Sebastian Bach's Air from his Orchestral Suite # 3 in D Major. Department of Dance Professor and Artistic Director Gary Galbraith will reprise his sensual duet Islands of Desire, which explores the travails of a couple who long to reconnect but are hampered by the ever present multimedia that infuses the lovers’ personal space. Brothers, a new dance work by Galbraith, showcases 7 of the men in the dance department. Set to the music of Barbatuques, Brothers brings forward a camaraderie among the men in a highly rhythmic and dynamic field of motion. Drawing from the strengths of the men, this dance has a tribal quality yet remains a contemporary, communal ensemble. Tickets are $10 for students, $12 for seniors age 60+ and CWRU personnel, and $15 for general admission. Student discounts are not available for the November 9 performance. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling (216) 368-5246 or online at dance.case.edu/reservations.

The Duke Ellington Center Big Band, conducted by multi-Grammy nominated Bobby Sanabria, will perform CrackerJazz, based on Duke Ellington’s 1960 "The Nutcracker Suite." CrackerJazz is the third of a monthly performance series honoring jazz icon Duke Ellington at Birdland Jazz Club, 315 West 44th Street, NYC. Doors open at 4:30pm; performance at 5:30pm. The program will include special appearances by jazz vocalists Sharon K. Janda, Antoinette Montague and Ty Stevens, as well as tap dance performances by DeWitt Fleming Jr., Felipe Galganni, members of the Tap City Youth Ensemble, Karen Callaway Williams and belly dancer Anna Pipoyan. Hosted and presented by Mercedes Ellington, Artistic Director/Founder of the Duke Ellington Center for the Arts, Inc., and Tony Waag, Artistic Director of The American Tap Dance Foundation (ATDF), CrackerJazz is based on the 1960 Duke Ellington album "Three Suites," a jazz interpretation of “The Nutcracker” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The works on the album were arranged by Duke Ellington and composer and pianist Billy Strayhorn. Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” was arranged and recorded by a number of big bands, beginning in the 1930’s, but the Ellington/Strayhorn version is the most often performed jazz version today. “Tap and jazz are undeniably attached at the hip,” said Mr. Waag, who is curating the tap dance portion of the Ellington performance series. Duke Ellington was inducted into the ATDF International Tap Dance Hall of Fame in 2017.

FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH CELEBRATES The 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE JEROME ROBBINS DANCE DIVISION Of THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY – NOVEMBER 6 – 10, 2019 Conceived and directed by Tina Croll & Jamie Cunningham, “From the Horse's Mouth,” a unique blend of movement and storytelling, will feature the artists, friends and NYPL luminaries who have preserved the world’s preeminent collection of dance materials, film and artifacts. THERE WILL BE FOUR PERFORMANCES OF FROM THE HORSES’S MOUTH, NOV 7TH, 8TH and 9TH AT 7:30PM, AND ON NOV. 10 AT 3PM. There will also be a Panel Discussion on Wednesday, November 6 at 3pm, and a Lecture Demonstration, "From Notation to Creation," by the Dance Notation Bureau on Friday, November 8, at 3pm. A special student matinee will take place on Sat., Nov. 9 at 3pm.  "From The Horse's Mouth," now in its 21st season, is a celebratory multi-disciplinary dance/theater production acknowledged for its meaningful story telling and exceptional dancing. Each FTHM chapter is a unique and special "one-time only" legacy based theatrical event. The New York Public Library’s Dance Division has in the 75 years since its creation become the world’s preeminent collection of dance research materials. Originally called the Dance Collection and housed at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street, The Dance Division was renamed in honor of Jerome Robbins—one its greatest supporters—in 1999. The Division not only houses its namesake’s vast collection, but is the leading international repository for the history of dance, with documentation that dates back to 1453 and representation for dance of all styles from around the world. The archive includes irreplaceable film that dates back to 1897, unique designs by visual artists, choreographic notation, photographs, manuscript collections, shoes and many more examples of ephemera. When taken together, these materials provide the opportunity to fleetingly recapture the most elusive of the performing arts.

BALLET HISPÁNICO  in collaboration with THE APOLLO THEATER presents The World Premiere of  Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones A Restaging of Nací by Andrea Miller Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales November 22-23, 2019 at 8:00pm Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2019 at 8:00pm with a program that continues its commitment to staging works by female, Latinx choreographers. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.    In the World Premiere of Tiburones, Anabelle Lopez Ochoa reimagines the world of the street gang, The Sharks (from the award-winning musical West Side Story) from a Latinx and gender fluid perspective. Ochoa will embrace non-gender specific roles while deconstructing stereotypes and giving new life to an ever appropriated cultural icon.   In this restaging of Nací (2009), choreographer Andrea Miller draws from the duality of her Spanish and Jewish-American background and employs her distinctive movement style to investigate the Sephardic culture of Spain, with its Moorish influence and profound sense of community, despite hardship.   Con Brazos Abiertos (2017) is a fun and frank look at life caught between two cultures. Michelle Manzanales utilizes iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas, to speak to the immigrant experience. Intertwining folkloric representations with humor and music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to Rock en Español, the work brings life to a Latino dilemma. "We are thrilled to bring the World Premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones to the Apollo Theater. Ballet Hispánico is dedicated to providing arts programming that is accessible to community members of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and we are grateful for this continued partnership with the Apollo, allowing us another opportunity to elevate the voices of Latinx and female artists,"said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro. "Our collaboration with Ballet Hispánico not only speaks to the importance of presenting such vital works in Harlem, but also speaks to the Apollo's mission of continuing to create a 21st century performing arts canon. We want to not only commission and present a myriad of new multidisciplinary works, but also continue being a home for cultural innovators such as Ballet Hispánico," said Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo's Executive Producer. "We are proud to support the work and talent of Ballet Hispánico because we value organizations who bring together communities of all cultures and ages through the beauty and passion of their art form," said Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of GOYA Foods.   Artistic Director & CEO: Eduardo Vilaro Rehearsal Director: Johan Rivera Choreographers: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andrea Miller, and Michelle Manzanales Dancers: the Ballet Hispánico Company; Simone Cameresi, Shelby Colona, Laura Lopez, Geena Pacareu, Gabrielle Sprauve, Dandara Veiga, Melissa Verdecia, Lenai Wilkerson, Christopher Bloom, Jared Bogart, Antonio Cangiano, Paulo Gutierrez, Paulo Hernandez, Omar Rivera, and Lyvan Verdecia   Tickets begin at $10 and will be available for purchase starting August 22, 2019.

Samuels Foundation, The Shubert Foundation, with public support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.   Univision Communications, Inc. is the Media Sponsor of Ballet Hispánico.   This performance at the Apollo is sponsored by GOYA.   Annabelle Lopez Ochoa has been choreographing since 2003 following a twelve-year dance career in various contemporary dance companies throughout Europe. She has created works on sixty companies worldwide including Ballet Hispánico, Cincinnati Ballet, Compañía Nacional de Danza, Dutch National Ballet, Finnish National Ballet, Royal Ballet of Flanders, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, Göteborg Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, BJM-Danse Montréal, New York City Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Tulsa Ballet, English National Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, to name a few. In 2012, her first full length work, A Streetcar Named Desire, originally created for Scottish Ballet, received the Critics' Circle National Dance Award for "Best Classical Choreography" and was nominated for the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production the following year. Annabelle is the recipient of the Jacob's Pillow Dance Award 2019.   Andrea Miller is Artistic Director and choreographer of Brooklyn-based company, Gallim, and has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist. A sought-after creator and collaborator in dance, art, film, theater, tech, and fashion, Miller was named 2017/2018 Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in October 2018, she was featured in Forbes as a female entrepreneur and leader in the dance world. Her highly acclaimed works are performed by Gallim as well as other leading dance companies around the world. Her work has been shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Frieze Festival, Art Basel, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, BAM Next Wave, The Joyce, and Jacob's Pillow, among others. Miller's educational programming is run from Gallim's Brooklyn home studio and has been brought to universities and educational centers across the US.   Michelle Manzanales is a choreographer and dance educator originally from Houston, TX. Michelle is the Director of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, but lends her artistic voice to all facets of the organization. She began working with Eduardo Vilaro, in 2003 as a dancer for his company Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago where she also served as Rehearsal Director in 2006 and as Interim Artistic Director from 2009-2010. Ms. Manzanales has created works for professional dance companies, universities, and schools across the nation including a commission for Ballet Hispánico's main Company for their 2017 season at The Joyce Theater. Her 2010 homage to Frida Kahlo, Paloma Querida, and 2007 piece, Sugar in the Raw (Azucar Cruda) have been praised by the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times. "This dance isn't just about one girl's experience; it applies to everyone, of any gender, and of any culture," said CriticalDance of Manzanales' Con Brazos Abiertos (2017).     About Ballet Hispánico Ballet Hispánico, America's leading Latino dance organization, has been bringing individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance for nearly 50 years. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground. The organization's founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company whose vision of social equity, cultural identity, and quality arts education for all drives its programs. Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education. Eduardo Vilaro (Artistic Director & CEO) joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico's legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America's changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. Mr. Vilaro's own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual, and historical essence of Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet, and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama's II International Festival of Ballet. Mr. Vilaro was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine's 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year. In 2019, Mr. Vilaro was the recipient of the West Side Spirit's WESTY Award, was honored by WNET for his contributions to the arts, and most recently, was the recipient of the James W. Dodge Foreign Language Advocate Award.    About the Apollo Theater  The legendary Apollo Theater-the soul of American culture-plays a vital role in cultivating emerging artists and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation and a creative catalyst for Harlem, the city of New York, and the world.   With music at its core, the Apollo's programming extends to dance, theater, spoken word, and more. This includes special programs such as the blockbuster concert Bruno Mars Live at the Apollo, 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella, the annual Africa Now!

This dazzling exhibit explores the life and art of one of the 20th century's most inspiring women, ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881 - 1931), through re-creations of her costumes and couture; the originals lost or disintegrated. This meticulously reconstructed wardrobe has been crafted in one-quarter scale by Boulder artist Peggy Turchette using original photographs, drawings, paintings, film footage, and written description. Over eighty-five individual outfits will be presented on 16 " mannequins, arranged in a highly original display. Anna Pavlova's story is compelling on many levels. From a humble background in Imperial Russia, she became the most famous ballerina of her day.
