Colorado Ballet Academy students perform at
the History Colorado Center in 2013
Make this Mother’s Day extra special by treating your
mom to a Colorado Ballet Academy event, hosted by the History Colorado
Center. At 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 11 students from the Colorado
Ballet Academy will put on a dazzling performance inspired by renowned
dancers Alicia Alonso and Alessandra Ferri. This intimate production
will be danced to music from the classical ballets of Giselle and Romeo and Juliet, and will also feature a new work created especially for this Mother’s Day!
Academy will present three different pieces, from students of Levels 1,
3, and 4. Carolina Pahde, one of the Academy’s choreographers, has said
that the new work in this year’s collection will feature a special solo
performance inspired by the popular 2013 animated film Frozen.
Ballet Academy is thrilled to be participating this year in the third
annual Mother’s Day event at History Colorado. Visitor Experience
Coordinator of the History Colorado Center, Alison Salutz says, “Each
year, we invite families to the museum for brunch and a performance, and
we're excited to have Colorado Ballet Academy dancers participating in

Mountain Youth Dance Foundation, so it will be a day of dance!”
