Vail International Dance Festival, Morphoses and Colorado Ballet

Saturday, August 11, 2007

By Gil Boggs

One of the great annual events in Dance is the Vail International Dance Festival each year here in Colorado during August! Within the festival this year is the very special Debut of Christopher Wheeldon's new company Morphoses. Kudos to Damian Woetzel, the new Artistic Director of the Vail International Dance Festival, for making this happen here in Colorado and for including our dancers as well. CB is proud to have eight corps de ballet women dancing in Christopher's Dance of the Hours. The debut is is Friday August 10th at 7:30pm in the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Christopher has invited several dancers from around the world to perform with his company and having seen the preview of his new company last Wednesday Morphoses is destined to be something very special. I am proud that CB is a part of the festival and the debut of Morphoses and I encourage all to make plans to attend each and every year because it is truly a highlight in dance, plus you're guaranteed to see some of the greatest dancers from around the world. Damian announced that Morphoses will return to the festival next your so you might as well start planning now.

Colorado Ballet is back on tour and we open tonight in Albuquerque NM at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The presenter is Ballet Pro Musica and their mission is keeping Live Music a part of ballet performances. We are here for 3 shows, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm, so if you find yourself in the neighborhood... We are performing 3 ballets on the program and its an outstanding program if I say so myself. We open with Postcards From Vienna by Alex Ossadnik, From Foreign Lands and People by Jessica Lang, and close with Yes Virginia Another Piano Ballet by Peter Anastos. Our dancers performing are (and they look great) Chandra Kuydendall, Sharon Wehner, Shunsuke Amma, Dana Benton, Sayaka Karasugi, Emily Bromberg, Christopher Ellis, Jesse Marks, Sean Omandam, and Andrew Skeels. Wish us Merde!

National Perfoming Arts Convention

I'm excited to announce that CB will be performing at the National Performing Arts Convention here in Denver on June 13, 2008 at the Buell Theater. A total of 13 dance companies were selected from Colorado and around the country to perform during the convention over two evenings, the second performance is in Gates Hall at The Newman Center June11th.

This will certainly be a great week here in Denver and many thanks to Mayor Hickenlooper for his wonderful presentation to the organizers of this event which convinced them to hold the convention in our city!
