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

The Limon Dance Company, an internationally acclaimed modern dance troupe, is currently celebrating it's 60th year. The dancers are of the highest technical ability with performance skills that bring their characters to life. I was immensly moved by their beautiful, thought-provoking concert and the amazing choreography.
Acclaimed around the world, the Limón Dance Company celebrates the 100th anniversary of José Limón’s birth with two premieres at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. The company’s clarity and expressiveness of movement embrace the humanistic approach to dance that was the vision of its legendary founder. The major revival premiere of Anna Sokolow’s groundbreaking jazz inspired “Rooms” (1955) set to an original jazz score by Kenyon Hopkins (performed live by Charles Owens and members of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra) and the world premiere of Clay Taliaferro’s newly commissioned work, “Into My Heart’s House,” inspired by Limón’s love for the music of J.S. Bach is something that cannot be missed.
