We opened in September at the Newman Center at Denver University and all I wished for came true. It was the perfect venue for our previously seen repertory (although one was new to the company) but in a different setting and the dancers showed an enormous range of diversity in the program we presented and they very much enjoyed the intimacy of the theater. We'll be back there next September and all I can say is we will be dancing a ballet that is a HUGE Denver favorite.
, enough said, it surpassed our wildest dreams. A production that any company in the world would be proud to present and it was here in Denver's backyard! A special thanks to the 10's of thousand who came. I can't wait for us to do it again.
And now we open The Nutcracker today through Christmas and this year we even have a few shows after Christmas for those with family in town and looking for some wonderful entertainment, after all the presents have been opened of course. We have 4 cast of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince and 5 cast of the Sugar Plum and Cavalier so plenty of opportunity to see your favorite dancers. Don't procrastinate too long to get tickets as sales are already ahead of projection.
I love this city and it's dance fans!!!
