Reviews & Ratings
Berkeley Ballet Theater (BBT) presents its Spring Showcase at the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts in Berkeley. The program will feature a new work by notable Bay Area choreographer KT Nelsen of ODC Dance and a work by Mark Bush, director and choreographer of Evansville Ballet. Also on the program will be a new work by Damara Ganley, formerly of ODC/Dance, and a staging of the historic ballet Les Sylphides, a non-narrative ballet based on music of Chopin that, when first introduced, was an innovative departure from traditional story ballets.
The second half of the program features Sur la Glace, choreographed by former Artistic Director Corinne Jonas and featuring BBT’s Children’s Division. Sur la Glace is a frolicking tale of all the mis-adventures and romance of the skating master and his pupils who have come to learn how to skate. Brandon Private Freeman, Brian Fisher, formerly of ODC/Dance, Robert Greer, BBT faculty member, and Alec Lytton will appear as guest artists.
