Ballet East Dance Company – Fall Performances

November 12, 2010 at 8:27 am Leave a comment

The Ballet East Dance Company presents original works by Regina Larkin and Juan Flores in its fall performance, “Morning/Midday.” The original piece by acclaimed modern choreographer Regina Larkin explores what can be learned from nature, especially from observing birds — their harmonious existence with other species, behavior on the ground, in the air, on and near the water, and the importance of partnership with a mate.

“Regina’s work is powerful because it draws on deep sources,” says Rodolfo Méndez, director of Ballet EastBallet East Dance Co Dance Company. “It stands the test of time. We’re excited to premier this new piece.”

A solo piece will be presented that was choreographed by Juan Flores, former Ballet East dancer now at the Alvin Ailey School in New York City.

The program also features original work by local choreographers Sharon Marroquín, Melissa Villarreal, Eric Midgley and Sheila Cruz.

“Morning/Midday” will be presented Thursday through Saturday, December 2-4, curtain at 8:00 p.m., and at a matinee Sunday, December 5 at 2:00 p.m. at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road.

Adults: $12.00
