The young, talented dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company presents Diciembre Mexicano, a journey through Mexico’s rich traditions, folklore, and dance forms focusing on the culturally significant month of December. A month of myriad holidays, ceremonies, and traditions, it can be said that December marks the high-point of the Mexican calendar when it comes to religion and folklore. Religious and cultural life in Mexico being often times so intertwined that they are indistinguishable, Diciembre Mexicano touches upon this beautiful complexity and promises to be an exciting and familiar evening of folklórico at its best. The group continues their commitment to the preservation of authenticity in stylings and interpretations of their work- mixing in the perfect amount of innovative spices.
