NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET Announces 2016-17 Season New York Theatre Ballet announces the 2016-17 season, which will include repertory performances throughout the year. This season, New York Theatre Ballet continues to provide a platform for female choreographers with a new work by former New York City Ballet dancer Antonia Franceschi and a NYTB Premiere by Martha Clarke. Franceschi’s new piece is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery and will be performed there in October, with original music by Claire Van Kampen. The pas de trois from The Garden of Villandry by Martha Clarke, who was heavily influenced by Antony Tudor, will be shown with Tudor's Fandango, Les Mains Gauches and the pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet at the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival in February 2017.

The work is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery: “I was very moved by the recent exhibit at the Church which was of tee shirts used as grave sites for the numerous children killed by guns in the past year,” said Antonia Franceschi. Also featured in the program is Jerome Robbins' Antique Epigraphs set to Debussy’s “6 Épigraphes Antiques,” staged by Kyra Nichols, and Song Before Spring choreographed by Zhong-Jing Fang (American Ballet Theatre, corps de ballet) and Steven Melendez (New York Theatre Ballet, principal dancer) to Philip Glass’ Piano Etudes played live by steel drum ensemble, NYU Steel. Jack Anderson recently wrote about Song Before Spring in London’s Dancing Times: “…This was not the gambol one might expect, but an emotional outburst that plunged young people into unruly and unpredictable passions…” and from Carla Escoda of the Huffington Post: “The evening closed with a tumultuous 48 minute account of Philip Glass’ etudes arranged for steel drums. The 12-member NYU Steel ensemble took no prisoners. neither did co-choreographers Steven Melendez, of New York Theatre Ballet and Zhong-Jing Fang of American Ballet Theatre.” 70th Birthday Gala for Founder and Artistic Director, Diana Byer Danspace Project October 7, 2016 at 6:30pm The evening will include Judgment of Paris by Antony Tudor and new works created especially for the event by Alexandra Damiani, former Artistic Director of Cedar Lake; David Parker & The Bang Group Marco Pelle with a new solo; Antonia Franceschi with a new solo for Romany Pajdak from London’s Royal Ballet; and Gemma Bond, followed by dancing with DJ Imogene Strauss.

Using society and personal somatic histories as frameworks, this evening-length work exposes and reevaluates the ways in which people choose to witness, analyze, and support each other. It examines how we unwittingly or otherwise use our familial and learned values when faced with the realities of being present and how far we will go to hide or reveal our perceived truths. Pale pink, baby blue. Sparkle, tear, big eyes, bruise. Blur, word, text post, pose. Absent, morbid, hashtag, rose. Can vulnerability be perceived as a feminist act? What if your last selfie garnered over 1,000 likes? Choreographer and performance artist Lindsey Mandolini shares an excerpt from "SAD GIRLS a??", a physical exploration of an internet aesthetic – IRL. Voyeurism, seduction, social media, and identity are woven together with visuals from Chicago-based multimedia artist Allen Johnson.

Ballet Ariel will once again delight audiences of all ages with two performances of A Little Cinderella with Tea Party, February 25th and 26th at the Cleo Parker Robinson Theatre. Ballet Ariel has abbreviated its full-length Cinderella just for little audience members treating them to a perfect afternoon of magic and wonder. Little hearts will be spellbound as the flower fairies dance with the coachmen, elegant ladies waltz and Cinderella captivates Prince Charming. Ever hopeful, the wicked stepsisters carry on wildly in a vain attempt to entice the Prince but they are no match for Cinderella’s charm and grace. Like the full-length ballet, A Little Cinderella is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s entrancing score. The original choreography by Ballet Ariel Director Ilena Norton is sophisticated, dynamic and entertaining yet engaging for guests of any age. Collaborating choreographers, Oleg Dedogryuk and Gregory Gonzales, contribute dances in their unique styles, perfectly complimenting Norton’s classically beautiful style. Director Ilena Norton describes A Little Cinderella as, “the perfect short, story ballet that young children will enjoy”. The very special Tea Party with Cinderella, Prince Charming and other costumed cast members on stage following the performance is a treat little ones won’t want to miss. A Little Cinderella and Tea Party will be performed on Saturday, February 25th and Sunday, February 26th at 3:00 p.m. at Cleo Parker Robinson Theatre, 119 Park Avenue West, Denver. For ticket information, please visit www.balletariel.org or call 303-945-4388.

Amy Chavasse, Sarah Konner and Austin Selden, imagines three characters bound together in a world created by fanciful songs, contrapuntal rhythms, and words that have meanings other than what they are. It asks the question, among many other things—is a bicycle an orgasm? Emi Nomo is lost, bells are for lovers, and each character remembers the site of the loss in their own way--in an abandoned cement factory, a gutted fun house, a goat rodeo, or perhaps the mud caked remains of a derelict town. It is a love story left in the sun too long.

Colorado Ballet will present a collection of three master ballet works to live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra in Ballet MasterWorks, which includes Firebird, by choreographer Yuri Possokhov and music by Igor Stravinsky. The ballet is based on the Russian folklore tale of the Firebird, a magical creature who assists Prince Ivan Tsarevich in rescuing the maiden Tsarevna from Kashchei the sorcerer. The production will also feature Serenade choreographed by George Balanchine to Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C.” Serenade was the first original ballet Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Colorado Ballet is extremely excited to present a work by choreographer Jiří Kylián for the first time—rounding out the program with Petite Mort by Kylián with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Kylián created this ballet for the Salzburg Festival on the second centenary of Mozart’s death.

Its cast of characters—fantastical, hunched, textured, anthropomorphic—and their overlapping confrontations in an intricate web of existence are steadily revealed. Meade originally created this haunting work while in residence at Lake Studios Berlin. In Teresa Fellion’s "Agawam", connectivity, fast footwork, and complex partnering examine sensibilities behind work ethic and familial bonds of post-depression-era, working-class, Italian-American immigrant families. Translation of some ethos, social practices, memories, and energetic currents into movement ask, “How do ‘borrowed’ threads of cultural crossover move us?”

Tom Gold Dance presents its sixth annual New York City season, Tuesday, March 14 and Wednesday, March 15 at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College. The Company will give the local premieres of Tom Gold Dance Founder and Director Tom Gold’s Oasis and Served. Details about a third work, a World Premiere, will be announced at a later date. Scheduled performers currently include dancers Sara Adams, Marika Anderson, Daniel Applebaum, Meagan Mann, and Kristen Segin of New York City Ballet; Allynne Noelle of The Suzanne Farrell Ballet; Zachary Guthier, most recently of Los Angeles Ballet; and James Shee, most recently of the National Ballet; and pianist Xak Bjerken. In 2017, Tom Gold Dance is a City University of New York Dance Initiative (CDI) resident artist, a collaboration that will allow the Company to rehearse and offer additional public activities at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater. Oasis was commissioned by the St. Louis Ballet as part of its October 8, 2016 Vision: Where Ballet and Fashion Meet program at The Touhill Performing Arts Center pairing three choreographers with three emerging fashion designers. Set to John Zorn’s “Lucifer” from the Book of Angels, Oasis explores the composer’s exotic and jazz-infused constructions through an imagined group meeting at a desert retreat. Oasis completes Gold’s Zorn trilogy, following Shanti (2003) and La Plage (2013). Gold began to develop Served in July 2016 as a participant in the 13th annual National Choreographers Initiative (NCI) in Irvine, California. While watching a tennis match on television, Gold observed similarities to ballet, not only in the sport’s power physicality, and intensity, but also its rhythm, balance, technical discipline, and virtuosity. Set to Schubert’s demanding Wanderer Fantasy, Served explores these qualities through the articulated steps of a “dancers’ club.” Allynne Noelle and Zachary Guthier, who appeared in Served during the NCI’s culminating public workshop presentation at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, July 30, 2016, will reprise their roles in the New York Premiere at the Lynch Theater. Served will be performed to live accompaniment. “We can’t wait to return to the Gerald W. Lynch Theater for our annual New York City season,” says Gold. “These works will demonstrate the wide range of traditional classical dancing across multiple and contrasting musical styles in our trademark mix of sophistication and fun. I am especially excited to introduce some of the original dancers from Served to New York audiences, and, as part of our effort to feature live music in all self- produced Tom Gold Dance events, to work with the highly accomplished pianist Xak Bjerken.” “After a productive and fulfilling year that included the Company’s European premiere of Tom’s adaptation of November Steps,” adds Executive Director Alexander Zaretsky, “we look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces to our home city performances. We are especially grateful for the chance to partner directly with the Gerald W. Lynch Theater to enhance the public’s awareness of and access to high quality and original dancing through the CDI residency program.” Information Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 7:30PM Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 7:30PM Both performances are at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater, 524 West 59th St. (between 10th and 11th avenues). Tickets Tickets, $25–$50, on sale as of Friday, December 16, 2016, can be purchased online at ticketcentral.com; by phone at (212) 279-4200, 12–8pm daily; or in person at 416 W. 42nd Street (between 9th and 10th avenues), 12–8pm daily. $10 student tickets with valid ID, in person only.

Ballet Ariel’s full-length ballet Cinderella returns to the PACE Center for one night only. This timeless story is an inspiration for audience members of all ages. Ballet Ariel’s Cinderella is deeply rooted in the beauty and grandeur of classical ballet yet it is infused with wit and whimsy. Guests will be swept into a magical world where one young woman’s life is forever changed by a fairy godmother and a delicate glass slipper. The ballroom scene is stunning with refined ladies of the Court waltzing gracefully and flower fairies dancing with the coachmen. Juxtaposed, are the wicked stepsisters as they cavort in the most outrageous and amusing manner hoping to capture the attention of Prince Charming. But in the end, it is the fair and lovely Cinderella who wins the heart of the Prince. Ballet Ariel’s production is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s captivating score. The original choreography by Ballet Ariel Director Ilena Norton is elegant and dynamic, flooding the stage with a post-modern classical gem. Collaborating choreographers, Oleg Dedogryuk and Gregory Gonzales, contribute dances in their unique contemporary styles, perfectly complimenting Norton’s classically beautiful style. Ballet Ariel company veteran Jennifer Kuhn reprises her role as Cinderella with guest artist Alexandru Glusacov dancing the role of Prince Charming with more than 40 students from Colorado School of Dance in Parker who will be performing the children’s roles. Director Ilena Norton stated, “We are excited to return to PACE to perform Cinderella with Parker’s Colorado School of Dance students” affirming the company’s delight to be returning to Douglas County. The curtain will rise on Cinderella at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 16th at the PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker, CO 80138.

Clairobscur Dance Company in no option, choice, preference At the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center Saturday, March 18, 2017, 8:00pm Los Angeles, California – With extraordinary dancers and eloquent choreography, Los Angeles based, Clairobscur Dance Company presents it’s evening: no option, choice, preference. This performance features one world premiere and repertory works. Choreographed by Artistic Director Laurie Sefton in collaboration with composers Mark Hadley and Bryan Curt Kostors, it will be performed for one night only, March 18, 2017, 8:00pm at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center. Following their recent performance in New York, Clairobscur returns to Los Angeles to present their newest evening of works. Dense and detailed movement leads to explicit and subliminally kinetic communication about climate change, bullying, and sexual fluidity. Acclaimed Artistic Director and Choreographer Laurie Sefton presents the world premiere of Girl, Get Off, a work for six dancers with a sound scape created by Bryan Curt Kostors. Girl, Get Off is filled with sexual fluidity from a woman’s point of view. This intensely sensual work is imbued with intricate details and dense movement that explores the idea that love is love, and that the freedom to experience joy and mutually consensual pleasure is a birthright and independent of gender identity. The program also includes two collaborations with composer Mark Hadley: desiccated earth/California, which tackles issues related to climate change and reflects our purlieu and our impact upon it. As well as, the critically acclaimed Bully, which explores the circumstances surrounding the bully and the victim; the evolution of their roles and the consequences of their relationship. "Laurie Sefton is one of Los Angeles' finest and strongest choreographers ...beautiful artistry... extraordinary choreography and dancing...."– Jeff Slayton, SeeDance.com Who: Clairobscur Dance Company What: no option, choice, preference When: Saturday, March 18, 2017 8:00pm Where: Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, 7148 W.

Ballet Ariel will once again delight audiences of all ages with A Little Cinderella, March 19th at the D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center. This beloved story, beautifully crafted and performed by Ballet Ariel’s professional company, returns for one show only. Ballet Ariel has abbreviated its full-length Cinderella just for little audience members treating them to a perfect afternoon of magic and wonder. Little hearts will be spellbound as the flower fairies dance with the coachmen, elegant ladies waltz and Cinderella captivates Prince Charming. Ever hopeful, the wicked stepsisters carry on wildly in a vain attempt to entice the Prince but they are no match for Cinderella’s charm and grace. Like the full-length ballet, A Little Cinderella is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s entrancing score. The original choreography by Ballet Ariel Director Ilena Norton is sophisticated, dynamic and entertaining yet engaging for guests of any age. Collaborating choreographers, Oleg Dedogryuk and Gregory Gonzales, contribute dances in their unique styles, perfectly complimenting Norton’s classically beautiful style. Director Ilena Norton describes A Little Cinderella as, “the perfect short, story ballet that young children will enjoy”. Over 35 students from Artistic Fusion Dance Academy in Thornton will perform the children’s roles in the ballet. A Little Cinderella will be performed on Sunday, March 19th at 3:00 p.m. at D.L.

Porter's "Firebird" at The Theatre at Meydenbauer Center March 24-26, 2017 with Orchestra Bellevue performing Stravinsky's famous and much-loved score under the baton of Music Director/Conductor Philip Tschopp. Tyranny, Subjugation, Addiction and ultimately Hope are some of the themes explored in "Firebird" by Porter's contemporary take on this (neo) classical ballet dating back to the era of Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. The story is of Ivan, a man who innocently stumbles into a world of evil and corruption that is ruled by a cruel leader through trickery and intimidation. In the struggle to navigate his way through this ugly place, Ivan's fate allows an encounter with the "Firebird", a beautiful, magical creature that he is drawn first to pursue and capture, but then set free, unaware that she would later rescue him from having become part of the darkness and evil of his environment.
