Time flies, literally! I cannot believe that I am preparing for my sixth season as Artistic Director of Colorado Ballet. It has been a whirlwind of excitement since the moment I stepped foot in the Mile High City and it just keeps getting better and better. This August we will leave our home at the Ellie and head to beautiful Summit County, Colorado for the esteemed Vail International Dance Festival, where we will perform a new work by the up and coming choreographer Emery LeCrone. This performance will be part of the Upclose: Premieres on Monday. Aug. 8. I am so excited about this performance! Along with the opportunity to perform a new work in one of the most beautiful places in the country—the majestic Rocky Mountains—it also affords us the chance to perform with some of the biggest newsmakers in dance—Christopher Wheeldon and Trey McIntyre. This will be one of those performances that will be pure fun and excitement! I can’t wait to see what Emery LeCrone has in store for Colorado Ballet.If you missed our season announcement, be sure to check that out HERE! It will give you all the great behind-the-scenes details on our upcoming visit to the Vail International Dance Festival, along with a detailed look at our upcoming 2011-2012 season, opening in October.

We hope to see you in the Rockies!
